British Values

Prevent Duty
The aim of ?Prevent? is to stop people becoming or supporting terrorists and to do this by challenging ideologies, protecting vulnerable individuals and supporting institutions, such as schools. It is part of the National Counter Terrorism Strategy known as CONTEST.
At Hindley J and I School we believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore the issue of diversity and understand Britain as a multi-cultural society. We do this through our Personal, Social, Health and Emotional (PSHE), and Religious Education (RE) curriculum which aims to foster in children values such as tolerance, understanding and respect. We also do this through debate and healthy discussion within a safe learning environment where opinions are valued and challenged in a respectful and informed way.
Staff have received training as part of our safeguarding duties in the recognition of children who may be vulnerable to such extremism.
