Redmile CE Primary School and RISE fully recognise the contribution we can make to protect children and support pupils in school.  Our policies and practice reflect our commitment to safeguard and promote our pupils’ welfare, safety and health by fostering an honest, open, caring and supportive climate.  The pupils’ welfare is of paramount importance.


We recognise the following four elements as pivotal to our responsibilities:


  • Prevention (e.g. positive school atmosphere, teaching and pastoral support for pupils, safer recruitment procedures);
  • Protection (by following agreed procedures, ensuring staff are trained and supported to respond appropriately and sensitively to Child Protection concerns);
  • Support (to pupils and school staff and to children who may have been harmed or abused);
  • Working with parents (to ensure appropriate communications and actions are undertaken).

Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) launches first ever digital Prevent partnership with Netmums


CT Policing launched an eight week digital partnership with Netmums, on 6 July 2021 to promote ACT Early the dedicated Counter Terrorism safeguarding website to parents. The campaign also aims to encourage them to have radicalisation on their radar in the same way they do with other online harms.


The ACT Early campaign and website aims to encourage family and friends worried someone close is at risk of becoming radicalised to act early and share their concerns. This will be the first ever digital partnership focused on supporting Prevent’s work and will help bring transparency around the programme and the support available. Netmums is the largest UK parenting site and is an established and trusted brand.


Over the following weeks, CTP Communications and Prevent will be working alongside Netmums delivering interactive opportunities for parents to learn about the dangers and signs to spot to help protect their children from the potential risk of online radicalisation. The campaign will also show that CT Policing working closely with other partner agencies have a role to play in safeguarding and are there to support and not criminalise if parents act early.


Fifty eight per cent of all Prevent referrals in 18/19 were of young people aged 20 and under, with nearly half of those relating to children under the age of 15. Currently, just 2% of referrals into the Prevent programme are made by family and friends, despite the fact that they are more likely to spot the signs of radicalisation before anyone else. CTP Communications and Netmums surveyed over 1000 parents to gain insights into their understanding of radicalisation and these were used to develop this new partnership.


The Netmums partnership will include online ‘drop-in’ clinics where parents can ask a Prevent officer questions and seek advice -> NETMUMS - Join our expert Q&A and find out more about online extremism. There will also be four informative articles on the Netmums website, social media content, a video of the topline survey results and content sent direct to parents via the Netmums newsletter -> NETMUMS - Tweens and teens (11+ years).


Key messages to parents:


  • Have a conversation with your children about the potential risks of radicalisation as you do about other harms like drugs, sexting and child sexual exploitation. Find out more by visiting
  • Protect your child by finding out about extremism and radicalisation and help make them more resilient to potential risks.
  • Find out how to make your child digitally savvy to help protect them
  • Not all children are vulnerable to radicalisation but some are and every parent needs to know the potential risks and what to look out for.
  • If you are concerned act early and seek advice from the advice line on 0800 011 3764.
