Leeds City Academy


The Prevent Agenda

Staff are trained to identify children who may be at risk of radicalisation and understand the procedures to follow if a young person is identified as vulnerable and may be drawn into terrorism. The training will be updated as and when is needed to ensure staff feel fully equipped to deal with any issues that may arise. Specific assemblies are delivered to all students by fully trained outside agencies to raise awareness and develop the knowledge of this current national and global issue.

Alongside Leeds City Academy's SMSC programme, we also have a series of five discreet lessons that have been planned externally to further meet the aims of the PREVENT agenda. These sessions work on a carousal basis so that by the end of Year 11 students have received 5 hours of discreet PREVENT input.

  • Year 7 - Identifying racism Half term 2 within HUMS
  • Year 8 - Diary of a Badman ‘staying safe’ Term 1 within HUMS
  • Year 9 - Exploring Britishness Term 2 within RE (HUMS)
  • Year 10 - Extremism Term 3 within RE (HUMS)
  • Year 11 - Exploring PREVENT To be negotiated with NSh (head of high school)

The Academy's Step-Up Days will also have specific topics embedded and delivered under the relevant themes.
