Extremism, Radicalisation & Prevent


This is the vocal or active opposition to our fundamental values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and the mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.


Radicalisation is defined as the process by which people come to support extremist or terrorist views.

This may include being encouraged to engage in criminal activity (damaging property, commit violent acts)

There is no single route to radicalisation. However, there are certain behaviours you can watch out for that we often see when someone is being led down the path of extremism and radicalisation.

These signs and vulnerabilities are not listed in any order of importance or an exhaustive list:

  • Being influenced or controlled by a group
  • An obsessive or angry desire for change or ‘something to be done’
  • Spending an increasing amount of time online and sharing extreme views on social media.
  • Personal crisis
  • Need for identity, meaning and belonging
  • Mental health issues
  • Looking to blame others
  • Desire for status, need to dominate

If you have seen things online which you are more-drawn to and you are worried or if you are worried someone close to you is becoming radicalised, act early and seek help.

The sooner you reach out, the quicker we can support your or the person you care about from being groomed and exploited by extremists.

Please talk to a member of staff at School or visit the safeguarding office.


Prevent is a government strategy said to be aimed at stopping people being drawn into terrorism. Prevent is not about catching terrorists, it is about identifying people who may be at risk of radicalisation, and supporting them to change direction in a way that will help them. 

Please talk to a member of staff at School or visit the safeguarding office.  

We will talk through support and strategies which may be helpful for you.
