Helping Schools Stay Safe

Rating: 0/5

Dealing with violent extremism is nothing new. Throughout history there have been groups prepared to use violence to achieve their aims.

Today’s Europe faces different threats. A small minority seek to radicalise young people with an ideology which justifies the use of violence through a distorted interpretation of a peaceful religion.

Schools have an important role to play in preventing extreme behaviour, and addressing the underlying issues that can attract young people towards violent extremist causes.

Schools can help to protect children from extremist and violent views in the same ways that they help to safeguard children from drugs, gang violence or alcohol.

Just as schools can educate young people about risk, they can offer opportunities to help young people understand the risks associated with extremism and to develop the knowledge and skills to be able to challenge extremist arguments.
Teachers are well placed to identify the needs and support the welfare of individual pupils who may be particularly vulnerable, working in partnership with other local agencies.

During the training, participants will learn about causes of extremism, cyber-crime and its prevention, about factors that contribute to vulnerability of young people and way to support them.
Participants will share their knowledge and learn from UK schools’ experience in implementation Prevent strategy; this, in turn, will allow participants to develop effective approach for their schools to create resilient community and support vulnerable students as well as help the school stay safe.
