Prevent from Northumbria Police
Northumbria Police has asked us to share some key information about their Prevent strategy.
As you may be aware our children and young people are sadly vulnerable to being drawn into concerning activity of various descriptions through their online activity. The forced hiatus bringing the premature closure of our schools due to Covid-19 will create opportunities for those people around the world who would seek to prey upon the vulnerable.
The simple message is a reminder for parents to carefully monitor their child’s online activity always, but even more so at this anxious period. The flyer below highlights useful links in supporting young people from the threat of terrorism, radicalisation (and other forms of grooming).
Unfortunately Year 10 & Year 12 work experience has now been cancelled. Please click here to see the letter which has been sent home to parents and students.

To help support parents during the coronavirus outbreak, they’ve written The Parents’ Guide to coping with school closures, a completely free online guide for parents of teens, explaining how they can protect their family’s health and wellbeing (mental and physical), help their children study at home and cope with the added stresses and anxieties the current situation brings.
|Teachers will be setting work and sharing it with students via Google Classroom, email, or other online tools such as MathsWatch and Seneca.
