Avocet Academy Trust is committed to Safeguarding and Child Protection and promoting the welfare of children and young people in our trust. We expect all our staff, governors, volunteers to share this commitment and carry out all the relevant checks to ensure the safety of pupils within the trust schools.
Avocet Academy Trust Safeguarding Policy Sept 2022
Each School has an Individual Addendum to the Trust Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
THE PREVENT DUTY
It is our responsibility to put in place robust procedures to protect our students from radicalisation and extremism.
These procedures are set out in our existing safeguarding policies;
Protecting the children in our care against extremism and radicalisation is treated in the same way as protecting them from other harms such as drugs, gangs, neglect and sexual exploitation.
In addition to our safeguarding responsibilities, we also help students build resilience against extremism and radicalisation by fostering a strong ethos and values-based education.
To help, here are some useful resources that explain the Prevent duty and advise on how we tackle extremism and radicalisation.
