PREVENT

PREVENT is part of the of the governments counter-terrorism strategy to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

Its three key objectives are; 

  • Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it.  
  • Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure that they are given appropriate advice and support
  • Work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalization which we need to address. 

All schools are required by law to teach a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral and cultural development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. 

Wave Multi Academy Trust can help to protect children from extremist and violent views in the same ways that it helps  to safeguard children from drugs, alcohol and other issues. 

Wave Multi Academy Trust's main purpose is to  protect children from harm and to ensure that they are taught in a way that is consistent with the law and the country’s values.

RELATIONSHIP & SEX EDUCATION (RSE)

Relationship Education underpins all that we do at Wave. 

To embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life, pupils need knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy. Pupils can also put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts. Everyone faces difficult situations in their lives. These subjects can support young people to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and to know where to access support. High quality, evidence-based and age-appropriate teaching of these subjects can help prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. It also enables us to continue to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, at our schools and in society. Relationships Education is compulsory for all pupils receiving primary education and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) compulsory for all pupils receiving secondary education from 2020. Parents and Carers have the right to request that their child be withdrawn from some or all of sex education delivered as part of statutory RSE. More details are available in the policy below.

Our academies have flexibility to deliver the content in a way that is age and developmentally appropriate and sensitive to the needs and religious background of its pupils. Our teachers are attuned and experienced in adapting teaching to individual needs, and mindful of the sensitivity for pupils of content covered as part of RSE. Through Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) lessons, and in building an understanding of individual need in the initial first weeks and ongoing, teachers seek to build a picture of prior learning, as our students in the majority of our academies join at different times of the year. This enables them to adapt lessons sensitively, but also ensure equality of access to the curriculum.  In Medical Provision, PHSE/RSE delivery will be a bespoke approach in line with individual health needs and guidance from Medical professionals in terms of timetable access.  

Should you have specific concerns, or require information about your school's RSE curriculum and the way they organise delivery, or wish to withdraw your child as outlined in the policy, please contact your child's academy.
