The Westminster Prevent team has developed a range of Prevent resources for both students and staff to assist schools with meeting the legal requirements of their ‘Prevent Duty’ and other safeguarding legislation.
The resources also aid schools in in achieving some of the non-legal responsibilities of educational settings, such as helping pupils build a resistance to extremist messages and to challenge a number of harmful and divisive narratives.
The needs of schools across Westminster are different and we recognise that a ‘one size fits all’ approach simply would not work. Therefore, this package is intended to give schools the freedom to pick and choose the resources and support that will be best suited to their institution, their environment and the risks that they face.
The resources and support are free to Westminster schools and colleges, and are available until March 2016. Institutions are encouraged to request resources as early as possible, as they will typically be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
The following document provides information on the resources and support that is available to schools in Westminster:
In some instances, the projects outlined in the document are delivered by an external provider, where this is the case it will be indicated. Some of the projects provide schemes of work and lesson materials and can be delivered by staff without the need for an external provider.
If you are interested in accessing any of these resources, please complete the Request Form included in the document. Alternatively, please contact the Prevent team directly.
The Prevent team have also put together the following documents which are designed to assist senior leaders and governors with the implementation of Prevent in their institution:
If you have any feedback regarding any of the materials or ideas for materials that you would find useful, please contact the Prevent team.

There are many organisations, groups and websites that provide resources to support schools with tackling radicalisation, extremism, intolerance, hate crime and other related topics.
