Tottington Primary School is committed to providing a secure environment for pupils, where children feel safe and are kept safe. All adults at Tottington Primary School recognise that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility irrespective of the role they undertake or whether their role has direct or responsibility for children or not.
Every member of staff recognises that safeguarding against radicalisation and extremism is no different to safeguarding against any other vulnerability in the current society. This policy sets out our beliefs, strategies and procedures to protect vulnerable individuals from being radicalised or exposed to extremist views, by identifying who they are and promptly providing them with support.
When operating this policy, Tottington Primary School uses the following accepted Governmental definition of extremism which is:
‘Vocal or active opposition to fundamental British Values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance or different faiths and beliefs; and / or calls for the death of members of our armed forces, whether in this country or overseas.’
