What is the prevent agenda?

Prevent is part of the Governments Counter Terrorism Strategy, CONTEST. Prevent is one of the four pillars that allow CONTEST to work effectively in our fight against Terrorism. The other pillars (known as the 4p’s) are PURSUE, PROTECT AND PREPARE.

 

All schools (maintained, non-maintained, Independent, nursery schools, registered childcare settings and pupil referral units) have a duty of care to the Young People in their keeping. To ensure that the appropriate steps are in place to minimise the risk of a Young person being vulnerable to Radicalisation.

How to embed prevent?

We need to move away from the notion that Prevent is something additional to safeguarding. PREVENT IS SAFEGUARDING. Some of the warning signs may be unique to other forms of harm but the way in which Young People are targeted and groomed are exactly the same. We need to embed Prevent in to the general safeguarding of our young People through regular staff training, risk assessments, and creating opportunities for Prevent to be discussed in the classroom, through age appropriate workshops, or discussion groups. I can do all of these things for you.

Working with Professionals

I have worked alongside Ofsted Inspectors at Regional Director level and possess a strong insight into Ofsted expectations when looking at PREVENT in schools. I can assist you in the following ways:

  • Document writing (creating risk assessments that demonstrate that you are PREVENT focused)

  • Staff training (face to face or virtually)

  • PREVENT related advice on concerns/referral advice, Channel Panel process.

  • Workshops for Young People (more details in ‘working with young people’)

  • Advanced SPOC training.

  • Reviewing PREVENT related policies and assessments for inspection.
