As part of St Philip's commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government's Prevent Strategy, and take guidance from Teaching Approaches to help build resilience to extremism.
What is the Prevent Strategy?
The Prevent strategy is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. It:
- responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views
- provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
- works with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health)

Most people live their lives online and this includes some of you children!
The following website:
explains the online dangers which possibly face your child and also includes great ideas about how to protect your children online, for example how to use parental controls.
St Philip’s will also be holding a parent workshop in February 2016 (around E-Safety Day), where you will have the opportunity to discuss the possible dangers of online gaming, social media, blogging etc. and how we can work as a school community to limit these risks.
