This week staff will be retrained in the Prevent Programme.
Prevent works to stop individuals from getting involved or supporting terrorism or extremist activity.
The Prevent Programme is designed to safeguard people in a similar way to safeguarding processes to protect people from gang activity, drug abuse, and physical and sexual abuse.
Staff are trained to spot the signs which may indicate that a child or adult is becoming involved in radicalisation, criminal or terrorist activity.
This is part of the staff’s professional development.

The Governing Body meets on Tuesday for their half termly Business meeting.
