What is radicalisation?

“Radicalisation” refers to the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and forms of extremism leading to terrorism. During that process, it is possible to intervene to prevent vulnerable people being drawn into terrorist-related activity.

What is extremism?

‘Vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs’. Being drawn into terrorism includes not only violent extremism but also non-violent extremism.

What are British Values?

‘Democracy, the rule of law, equality of opportunity, freedom of speech and the rights for all men and women to live free from persecution of any kind’.

What are our procedures?

All staff are aware of the Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy, which outlines the procedures we would follow, for any aspect of safeguarding, including extremist views/extremism.
