The Prevent strategy is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. As described in official documents published by Her Majesty’s Government, the Prevent Strategy: responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support works with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health) If you are concerned that a Governor or potential Governor may have links to extremism or that child might be at risk of extremism, or if you have any other concern about extremism at White House Academy, please contact the Department for Education’s helpline on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7340 7264.
