Leeds East Academy


Prevent Agenda

Staff are trained to identify children who may be at risk of radicalisation and understand the procedures to follow if a young person is identified as vulnerable and may be drawn into terrorism. The training will be updated as and when is needed to ensure staff feel fully equipped to deal with any issues that may arise. Specific assemblies are delivered to all students by fully trained outside agencies to raise awareness and develop the knowledge of this current national and global issue.

The Prevent Agenda has been added to Values Curriculum and will be delivered as part of the coaching to promote discussion and debate on current issues in modern society. Citizenship days will also have specific topics embedded and delivered under the relevant themes.

In our academy, we regularly invite external speakers to discuss the Prevent strategy in assemblies and staff receive training on the importance of remaining vigilant and the responsibility of staff to play a vital role in protecting students from the risk of extremism and radicalisation as part of their safeguarding induction training.
