Home | Our School | PREVENT


As a school we have a duty of care for our learners and staff to safeguard them from the risk of being drawn into terrorism.

Our PREVENT statement makes our commitment to this duty clear.


Provision- learners enjoy a creative curriculum which includes a global and anti-racist approach to each topic enhanced by outstanding social, moral, spiritual and cultural opportunities and the promotion of fundamental British Values.


Respect is a key element of our school community ensuring that children and adults feel safe and confident to make choices with an understanding of the consequences of their actions on others.


E-Safety is central to our learning in a 21st century classroom and learners are kept safe through filtering but are also taught how to keep themselves safe when using the internet.


Values – Our School Values underpin all we do at Braidwood and support our active promotion of the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs and respect for our Armed Forces.


Elected School Council ensure that learners have an active voice in school and help to shape the future of policy and practice through discussion, debate and a fair democratic process.


No - We say no to any form of extremism including hurtful language, exclusion of any learners or groups (by other learners or staff) and all forms of aggressive behaviour. Our pastoral care ensures swift action and targeted support for all members of our school.


Training – Staff are trained to identify risks and the processes involved in radicalisation. They are aware of the importance of early intervention and are committed to challenge any form of extremist behaviour. They know the routes for referral and key staff have completed the CHANNEL Awareness module. All visitors and speakers are asked to read and adhere to our PREVENT statement.



The PREVENT lead at Braidwood is Mrs Karen Saywood.
