Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes.

The Prevent Strategy covers all types of terrorism and extremism, including the extreme right wing, violent Islamist groups and other causes. 

From July 2015 all schools (as well as other organisations) have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism.  This means we have a responsibility to protect children from extremist and violent views the same way we protect them from drugs or gang violence or keep them safe on line. Here is a leaflet produced for parents.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Prevent Strategy please contact Mrs Goldsmith (Designated Safeguarding Lead) at dsl@wps.org.uk.
