New NSPCC Helpline for parents worried about radicalisation
Parents can now call a free, 24-hour NSPCC helpline if they are concerned about their children becoming radicalised.
Counsellors from the NSPCC have been trained by experts from the Home Office to advise parents on how to spot signs of radicalisation in children who could fall victim to online groomers.
The helpline is also available for parents who want to know how to reassure children worried about terrorist attacks taking place.
Adults can ring the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
In order to inform School, parents and the community about their responsibilities under the NEW PREVENT (COUNTER TERRORISM AND SECURITY ACT 2015) we are putting some information on this page.
The information, from Devon County, defines and gives actions we as a School, Teachers, Governors and VOLUNTEERS needs to take if we see or hear something which could indicate radicalisation or extremism.
Everyone in our community has a responsibility to safeguard our children. If you have any questions please make an appointment to come in to discuss the subject.
This material should be read in conjunction with our ‘Prevention of Radicalisation Policy’ which can be found at SWSF POLICIES
