All staff at Wood Green School have a duty to safeguard and promote the health, safety and welfare of all children and young people for whom they are responsible or with whom they come into contact in the course of their duties. This includes protecting students from radicalisation. We do not support terrorism of any kind, whether based on Islamist, extreme right-wing or any other extremist ideology. We will not tolerate extremist activity of any sort which creates an environment for radicalising individuals and could lead them on a pathway towards terrorism. Challenging and tackling extremism is a shared effort.
There must always be a designated member of staff who has attended recognised training such as Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP). This training, accredited by the Home Office, enables safeguarding leads to train staff to recognise those who are being radicalised and the process to refer them for support and assistance. By completing the training, participants will become trained WRAP facilitators and therefore can train others and raise awareness about preventing terrorism themselves. The school will ensure that training about radicalisation will take place for all staff as part of the safeguarding training. If any member of staff is concerned about a student, it is their duty to report it to the safeguarding team.
We will further tackle radicalisation by promoting British Values through Assemblies, Personal Development Days and Enrichment and this will be mapped by the Deputy Headteacher Curriculum.
This Policy and its effectiveness will be monitored by the Community Governors as part of the safeguarding policy.
