Safeguarding from Extremism
In primary education we believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore the issue of diversity and understand Britain as a multi-cultural society.
We believe in providing a safe learning environment in which children can raise controversial questions and concerns without fear of reprimand or ridicule and explore boundaries of what’s acceptable will engender an open attitude to multi cultural and race issues. We also adhere to the principle that people should treat everyone with respect whatever their race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, special need or disability.
"The way we educate our young people shapes the society we will live in. British schools have long been dedicated to encouraging students to think for themselves and to think about others, a blend of critical thinking and empathy that is the best inoculation against radicalism and extremism.” Russell Hobby NAHT General secretary 06/11
As an academy, we have risk assessed the need to safeguard our children from extremism and our staff are trained in this area.
