The Government set out its definition of ‘British values’ in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and 2015 Prevent Duty Guidance. Turing House reflects ‘British values’ in all that we do and we promote ‘British values’ through our SMSC education which permeates through the school’s curriculum and supports the development of the ‘whole student’. You can find out more about ‘British values’ at Turing House here.
The ‘Prevent’ strategy
The Prevent strategy is nationwide and forms part of the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy. ‘Prevent’ aims to stop people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism and each police force within the country has a unit which is focussed on the ‘prevent’ strategy. You can find out more about how Turing House approaches this topic here and the ‘Prevent’ strategy via the documents below
