Safeguarding

Holy Family Catholic Primary School is committed to safeguarding all our children. We believe that children have a right to learn in a safe, supportive and caring environment. Children have a right to be protected from all types of abuse. All staff at Holy Family are all highly trained in Safeguarding and the Prevent Duty. Staff are vigilant in looking for signs of abuse and know how to apply our robust safeguarding procedures.

The school is committed to building strong links with the Community; community cohesion is central to our school ethos and mission.

We aim to Prevent and Protect - in line with the UK Counter Terrorism strategy.

 

What is Prevent?

Prevent is part of CONTEST, the Government’s strategy to address terrorism. The main aim of Prevent is to stop (prevent) people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. Prevent focuses on all forms of terrorist threats, including international terrorism and far right extremism (among others).

The Government’s Prevent strategy is set out here:

Three key themes

We work together with the police and LA to focus on three key themes:

  • Safeguarding vulnerable individuals through the provision of advice and support and intervention projects.
  • Working closely with institutions such as Universities, Schools, Prisons, Health, Charities and faith establishments.
  • Challenging terrorist ideology by working closely with other local and national agencies, partners and our communities

Prevent Team

The Prevent Engagement Team of officers and police staff aim to encourage discussion ensuring that terrorism is prevented from taking root in our communities. They support the wider engagement activities already taking place in schools, places of worship and community groups.

Through this work they aim to strengthen communities in order to challenge the ideologies and messages of hate which lead to terrorism.
