:: Tackling and preventing extremism in the curriculum ::
How can your school fully deliver the Prevent strategy ? Schools have a specific safeguarding duty to prevent young people being drawn into terrorist activities through radicalisation. This course demonstrates how schools can provide curriculum opportunities that build pupils' resilience to radicalisation through approaches that support and value inclusion and diversity. We will look at material that will develop and enhance pupil resilience, empathy and respect for others. We will enable participants to build their skills in managing with sensitivity and confidence any controversial issues and ideas raised by pupils and parents. We will look at how to equip young people to maintain a sense of worth, develop clear aspirations, challenge ideology, question effectively and identify, evaluate and manage risk. The Ofsted inspection framework specifies that : "Inspectors will want to consider evidence that children and learners are able to understand, respond to and calculate risk effectively, for example risks associated with radicalisation and extremism."
The aim of the course is to:
  • scope what is needed for a full school strategy and identify how to embed and deliver the Prevent duty through the curriculum
  • identify the vital building blocks that support young people’s resilience against extremism
  • access lesson plans and curriculum ideas designed to prevent extremism and radicalisation
  • build participant confidence and skill in managing classroom discussions about controversial issues
Suitable for:
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Early Career Teachers
  • Middle Leaders
  • Newly Qualified Teachers
  • Senior Leaders
