Preventing extremism: policies
You aren't required to have a distinct policy relating to the Prevent duty, though you may choose to have one. Look through the linked examples from primary and secondary schools to help you write your own.
This is an optional policy
It isn't necessary to have a policy specifically for preventing extremism.
However, we have found examples of some schools to have drawn up distinct policies on radicalisation that we've highlighted below.
What policies are required
Under the government's anti-radicalisation Prevent strategy, you do need to have:
- Robust safeguarding policies that identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism, and set out protocols for ensuring visiting speakers are suitable and supervised appropriately
- ICT policies that ensure children are safe from terrorist and extremist material when accessing the internet in school, such as by establishing appropriate levels of filtering
