Working with Individuals Vulnerable to Extremism in Education Settings

Working with Individuals Vulnerable to Extremism in Education Settings is now available.

There are 4 key aims for this guidance:

1) To provide advice on understanding and recognising the risks and vulnerabilities of radicalisation and appropriate, proportionate responses and interventions

2) To provide clarity on the process that needs to be followed when a concern is identified: NOTICE, CHECK and SHARE

3) To provide information on the local arrangements in place to support the multi-agency workforce

4) To signpost the reader to the most relevant national guidance and strategies

Following the reading of this guidance, schools, settings and colleges need to ensure that Prevent and the Channel processes are embedded within their organisations and within the day to day safeguarding practice of staff Schools and colleges in exercising their functions, must have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. Schools are required to complete a Safeguarding Audit for the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children’s Board on a two yearly basis.

Prevent is threaded throughout this document, and will help schools identify any gaps. Further supporting guidance can be accessed here
