Chyngton Primary School

Extremism and Radicalisation

The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 obliges schools and other authorities to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism or extremism.

It important that these risks and dangers are considered for every child, right across the country. This includes those places that have not traditionally seen themselves as being at risk, such as in a primary school like ours. We recognise this fact and ensure that children are safe from online terrorist and extremist material in school, via appropriate levels of filtering, we check the suitability of visiting speakers and make sure that our staff are equipped to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism, as well as to challenge extremist ideas. They know how to refer children for further help. Please remember that everyone has a responsibility to take action to report any concerning content online including our parents, staff, governors and children.
