Prevent and Channel

The Prevent strategy aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.  While it remains rare for children and young people to become involved in terrorist activity, young people from an early age can be exposed to terrorist and extremist influences or prejudiced views. As with other forms of safeguarding strategies, early intervention is always preferable.

Key Documents and Information

For  information regarding Prevent within Schools please visit the KELSI website.

If you are concerned about the radicalisation of a young person or other family members please refer the case to the County Channel Panel, or contact the 'Front Door Team'.
