How can we do values education?

Where are we already doing it?
What to do if you have concerns
about a pupil?
A multi-agency, Channel Panel will be convened to devise a bespoke action plan for the pupil in partnership with the school

Speak with the safeguarding lead at school
If there is significant cause for concern, the safeguarding lead should contact local Prevent officer
The Prevent officer will make an assessment and see if they feel the pupil needs referring to Channel

What are they?
conveyor-belt theory
Since 2014 schools have a duty
actively to promote FBV
have a
clear strategy
for embedding FBV
show how work has been effective in doing so

Fundamental British values
NOT about:
UK stereotypes
British patriotism

IS about:

multiple layers to our identity
many ways to be British
rejection of stereotyping, prejudice and hate

safeguarding policies
IT policies
staff training

AND existing duties under the
+ community cohesion
+ curriculum
• Department for Education (2014), Improving the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of pupils: supplementary information - Departmental advice for independent schools, academies and free schools

137. In making this judgement in schools, inspectors will consider:
 how the school prepares pupils positively for life in modern Britain and promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith
 how leaders promote all forms of equality and foster greater understanding of and respect for people of all faiths (and those of no faith), races, genders, ages, disability and sexual orientations (and other groups with protected characteristics), through their words, actions and influence within the school and more widely in the community
 the work to raise awareness and keep pupils safe from the dangers of abuse, sexual exploitation, radicalisation and extremism, and what the school does when it suspects that pupils are vulnerable to these issues.

Effectiveness of leadership and management
Grade descriptors for the effectiveness of leadership and management: Outstanding (1)
 Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and, within this, the promotion of fundamental British values, are at the heart of the school’s work

 Leaders promote equality of opportunity and diversity exceptionally well, for pupils and staff, so that the ethos and culture of the whole school counters any form of direct or indirect discriminatory behaviour. Leaders, staff and pupils do not tolerate prejudiced behaviour

 Leaders’ work to protect pupils from radicalisation and extremism is exemplary. Leaders respond swiftly where pupils are vulnerable to these issues. High quality training develops staff’s vigilance, confidence and competency to challenge pupils’ views and encourage debate.

"Effective 'Prevent' work should be about education, not the surveillance of young people"
Potential problems
divide communites
Muslims perceive themselves to be targeted

inhibit free speech
inhibit legitimate dissent
create unneccessary suspicion
Examples of mistakes
"eco terrorist"
("We also include in our definition of extremism calls for the death of members of our armed forces”).
Similarities (common humanity) first,
then differences
also in Maths!?
Create a safe space
Don't silence
Develop students' capacity to see the world from the viewpoint of other people
Develop the capacity for genuine concern for others, both near and distant
Weakness and helplessness is not shameful - it is an opportunity for cooperation
Incorporating empathy into teaching for social justice -

Promote accountability by treating each child as a responsible agent
Promote the skill and courage to raise a dissenting voice
Teach real and true things about other groups
Undermine the tendency to shrink in disgust
The school does not need a distinct Prevent policy, but should have robust safeguarding policies which should take into account guidance outlined in
Working Together to Safeguard Children
Keeping Children Safe in Education

Schools should be logging concerns, so that patterns can be identified.

Schools need to work in partnership with their Local Safeguarding Children’s Board and make sure that their policies and procedures are aligned.

Equality Act
Some examples
for you to consider
“The Prevent duty is not intended to stop pupils debating controversial issues. On the contrary, schools should provide a safe space in which children, young people and staff can develop knowledge and skills to be able to challenge extremist arguments” DfE 2015

“Schools should be safe spaces in which children and young people can understand and discuss sensitive topics” Home Office, 2015

“We expect schools to explore opportunities in the curriculum to provide counter narratives, for example in English, RE, Citizenship, History and PSHE” Geraint Evans, Ofsted, 2015

NB targets all forms of extremism
including right wing...
Challenge stereotypes

Good practice

about safeguarding children around issues of radicalisation or extremism

An understanding of the
statutory duty

+ what these mean practically for schools
"But what's this got to do with Primary school?"
Teacher opposition
In order to create an inclusive school where everyone can flourish, whatever their background, we promote an ethos of respect and empathy, where diversity is valued and celebrated – both within school and the wider world. Pupils are taught the virtues of kindness, appreciation and what it means to be courageous. Special care is taken to educate everyone in the Brookfield community about the needs of others and how best to meet them. We foster open and honest communication with parents, carers and specialists and actively seek to engage with all members of the Brookfield community in a positive and supportive manner.
