Preventing Radicalisation and Extremism


At The Vaynor First School, we take our duties to protect children against radicalisation and extremism very seriously.  However we are mindful that our pupils are aged 4-9 years and feel that it is through a broad and balanced curriculum underpinned by a strong Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural ethos that will aid our children to grow up as strong individuals, able to make informed choices.

We believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore the issues of diversity and understand Britain as a multi-cultural society and as part of our Curriculum we provide a safe learning environment in which children can raise questions, concerns and explore boundaries of what is acceptable regarding their attitude to multi-cultural and race issues.

PREVENT forms part of the Governments counter terrorism strategy and aims to prevent children and young people from getting drawn into terrorism.

There’s a chance that your child may meet people online or visit websites that could lead them to adopting what we consider to be extreme views, and becoming radicalised. The link below will take you to a very useful website which can help you to ensure that your children are staying safe online.
