Schools have a requirement in law to help tackle extremism

''We also need to recognise that, young people can be exposed to extremist influences or prejudiced views, particular those via the internet and other social media. "Schools can help to protect children from extremist and violent views in the same ways that they help to safeguard children from drugs, gang violence or alcohol. Schools’ work on Prevent needs to be seen in this context. The purpose must be to protect children from harm and to ensure that they are taught in a way that is consistent with the law and our values. Awareness of Prevent and the risks it is intended to address are both vital. Staff can help to identify, and to refer to the relevant agencies, children whose behaviour suggests that they are being drawn into terrorism or extremism" (Prevent Strategy)

High Hazels Academy  working with other local partners,  families and  communities,  can help support pupils who may be vulnerable to extremism as part of its wider safeguarding responsibilities. Reference to the way in which we do this is found in the Sheffield Safeguarding protocols which are adopted by this academy.
