The Prevent Strategy is about protecting people from the threat of terrorism and about embedding British Values and strengthening standards on spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of students.
It is about stepping in to help vulnerable people at risk of being recruited by terrorist or extremist groups at home or abroad and safeguarding individuals and the community as a whole.
We can work together to develop resilience to extremist influences which support terrorism and together we can prevent terrorism.
Be alert to any groups which target or use your community space for propaganda activities
Watch for any people who raise funds destined for illegal activities
Be aware that chatting to people you don’t know online is a common method used to radicalise young people and express extreme views
Respect other people’s views and learn from other people’s opinions. Extremism comes in many forms, make sure your opinions are expressed appropriately and with respect for cultural differences
British Values are in place to safeguard everyone and to create guidelines for self-knowledge, respect, positive contribution to society, tolerance and harmony and democracy. These are the British Values:
Your opinion counts
Rule of the law
No one is above the law
Laws protect everyone
Innocent until proven guilty
Respect and tolerance
All backgrounds and cultures
All ages, genders and sexualities
All religions and beliefs
Freedom of speech
