Protective Behaviours

Protective Behaviours (PB’s) is a safety awareness and resilience building programme which helps children and adults to recognise any situation where they feel worried or unsafe, such as feeling stressed, bullied or threatened and explores practical ways to keep safe. Protective Behaviours also looks at identifying support networks for times when we need someone to listen and help.

 

Protective Behaviours is based on two key messages:

  • We all have the Right to Feel Safe all of the Time
  • We can talk with Someone About Anything, even if it feels awful or small   

 

Further information and a national practice sharing forum can also be found at PB People – https://www.protectivebehaviours.org/

PREVENT

Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes.

The Prevent strategy covers all types of terrorism and extremism, including the extreme right wing, violent Islamist groups and other causes.

 

From July 2015 all schools (as well as other organisations) have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism.

 

This means we have a responsibility to protect children from extremist and violent views the same way we protect them from drugs or gang violence..

 

Importantly, we can provide a safe place for pupils to discuss these issues so they better understand how to protect themselves.

 

Many of the things wealready do in school  to help children become positive, happy members of socity also contribute to the Prevent strategy.

 

These include:

  • Exploring other cultures and religions and promoting diversity
  • Challenging prejudices and racist comments
  • Developing critical thinking skills and a strong, positive self-identity
  • Promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, as well as British values such as democracy

 

We will also protect children from the risk of radicalisation, for example by using filters on the internet to make sure they can’t access extremist and terrorist material, or by vetting visitors who come into school to work with pupils.
