PREVENT Risk Assessment and Action Plan

Potential Risks:

1) Students accessing extremist material in school VERY LOW RISK
  IT filters in use at all times, making accessing unsuitable material very difficult. Tracking software allows staff to log any attempts to access extremist material and identify students.  
2) Students accessing extremist material outside school LOW / MEDIUM RISK
  PSHE lessons and assemblies to focus on the dangers of extremism, educating students about the risks and what to do if they find or are encouraged to access extremist material.
E-safety evenings for parents to show them how to set filters at home and what to be aware of.
3) Students expressing extreme views or encouraging others to behave extremely LOW RISK
  Pastoral system understood by all students and they are confident to disclose to key staff. Staff aware of PREVENT and dangers of extremism and report using the LOC form. PCSO contact in city can be used to support messages about dangers and legalities of extreme or radical behaviour.  
4) The school becoming associated with extremist groups VERY LOW RISK
  External bookings carefully checked that they are not affiliated with extremism. Policies in place to deal with staff, students or visitors who express extremist or anti-British sentiments.

British Values

At Manor Drive Primary Academy we promote values which ensure that our students develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility.

We prepare students for the life in modern Britain because values such as individual liberty, democracy, the law, mutual respect and tolerance are embedded within the curriculum and the ethos at MDPA.

In addition, these values are also promoted at various times throughout the year.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced, complies with legislation and provides a wide range of subjects which prepare students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in Modern Britain.

It actively promotes the fundamental British Values and it extends beyond the classroom with a wide range of visits and experiences.

It promotes tolerance and respect for people of all faiths (or none), cultures and lifestyles through effective spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, including by engaging pupils in extracurricular activity and volunteering in the local community.

It is supported by a well-rounded programme of assemblies which offer a clear guidance of what is right and wrong.
