The ‘Prevent Strategy’

The Government’s ‘Prevent Strategy’ came into force on 1st July 2015 .  The purpose of this strategy is to safeguard children from extremist views and violence.  Schools are obliged to make a statement to parents, informing them of the steps being taken to ensure that pupils do not become embittered and resentful of other faiths and cultures through a lack of knowledge and understanding.

The ethos of St James’ is one of respect for all, regardless of faith, culture or difference. In RE, pupils are taught about other faiths in order to promote respect and tolerance.

At St. James’ we have a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral and cultural development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. We invite people into school from other faiths to talk to the children about their daily experiences and beliefs.

We teach the Pupils about the British Values which affirm the basic principles of a just and fair society.  These principles align well with the Church’s teaching on the ‘Common Good’.

If the school became concerned about a pupil becoming exposed to extremist views or violence, we would deal with it in line with our safeguarding policy. We would speak to the parents first, and if appropriate, make a referral to the Bromley Safeguarding Board who may involve the Police.
