The school works closely with Cheshire Police to identify signs of radicalisation and extremism and refers to Prevent.

What is Prevent?

The Government has a strategy called PREVENT which aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

  • Main focus to prevent repeats of terrorist acts
  • Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it
  • Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
  • Work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation which we need to address

Key Terms

  • RADICALISATION – is a process by which an individual or group comes to adopt increasingly extreme political, social or religious ideals and aspirations
  • TERRORISM – the unofficial or unauthorised use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims
  • EXTREMISM – the holding of extreme political views.
