Over the next year there are a number of Safeguarding Days / Events being held across the country. These are:-
Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism or extremist causes. The strategy covers all types of terrorism and extremism. All schools have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism. Phoenix Academy is committed to protecting our young people from extremist and violent views, and to teach them values such as tolerance and mutual respect. We provide a safe environment for pupils to discuss any issue so they better understand how to protect themselves.
All staff at Phoenix Academy have received Prevent Strategy Training in September 2019.
Please see the NSPCC video for Parents/Carers worried about radicalisation:
