The pupils at Wilberfoss CE Primary School are our responsibility and concern. We work in partnership with parents and consider it a priority to inform and involve the parents at every stage in their child’s time at the school.
The website also has an extensive Online Safety and eSafeguarding section - link below.

What is Prevent?
Prevent is part of CONTEST, the Government’s strategy to address terrorism. The main aim of Prevent is to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. Prevent focuses on all forms of terrorist threats. E.g. international terrorism, far right extremists (among others).
A link to the Government’s Prevent strategy can be found below.
From July 2015, all schools have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism. Many of the things we already do in school to help children become positive, happy members of society also contribute to the Prevent strategy.
- Exploring other cultures and religions and promoting diversity.
- Challenging prejudices and racist comments
- Developing critical thinking skills and a strong, positive self identity.
- Promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, as well as British values such as democracy.
Below is the Prevent advice from the DfE.
