We ensure that partisan political views are not promoted in the teaching of any subject in school. Where political issues are brought to the attention of pupils, reasonably practical steps will be taken to offer a balanced presentation of opposing views to pupils.
Stereotypes based perhaps upon gender, religion, race or sexuality can be challenged through SMSC/PSHCE work, assemblies and curriculum work including literacy and cross curricular texts and also by means of appropriate discussions and general interactions with children. Staff act as responsible, positive role models.
Staff are required to be vigilant to the possibility of children accessing or sharing materials likely to promote extreme views. Such materials may be paper-based or computer based. Staff will always bring any materials and/or concerns to the attention of a member of the School's Senior Management Team, who will act upon information appropriately. Mrs Shaw (Head Teacher) has undertaken PREVENT training.
