Implementing the Prevent Duty at

RISE Education School

RISE Education School is committed to providing all our students a safe and nurturing environment. Central to this commitment is our dedication to upholding the principles outlined in the Prevent Duty. We recognise the importance of safeguarding our students from the potential risks of radicalisation and extremism and take proactive steps to ensure their well-being.

Vigilance and Awareness

Our staff members undergo rigorous training to recognise signs of radicalisation or extremist behaviour. This includes understanding the various forms of extremism and identifying indicators that an individual may be vulnerable to radical ideas. Through regular workshops and updates, our team remains vigilant and prepared to respond effectively to any concerns.

Open Dialogue and Critical Thinking

We encourage an open and inclusive learning environment where students feel comfortable discussing their beliefs, opinions, and concerns. Through respectful dialogue and critical thinking exercises, we empower our students to express themselves while also providing them with the tools to discern between legitimate discussions and potentially harmful ideologies.

Fostering a Culture of Inclusivity

At RISE, we celebrate diversity in all its forms. By creating an inclusive atmosphere where everyone is valued and respected, we aim to counteract exclusionary narratives that may contribute to radicalisation. Our curriculum reflects this commitment, incorporating materials that promote understanding, empathy, and respect for all cultures and backgrounds.

Partnership and Engagement

We work closely with parents, guardians, and the wider community to ensure a collaborative approach to preventing radicalisation. This includes regular communication, workshops, and informational sessions to raise awareness and provide support networks for students and their families.

Reporting Mechanisms

We have established precise reporting mechanisms for staff, students, and parents to raise any concerns they may have regarding radicalisation or extremist behaviour. These reports are handled with the utmost sensitivity and confidentiality, ensuring a swift and appropriate response.

By actively implementing the Prevent Duty, RISE Education School is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Together with our staff, students, and community, we are committed to upholding these principles and safeguarding the well-being of all our learners.
