From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.
This duty is known as the Prevent duty.
All teaching staff at St. Louis Academy have undertaken Prevent duty awareness training in order to identify children who may be vulnerable to radicalisation, and know what to do when they are identified.
(Reference: The Prevent Duty, Departmental advice for schools and childcare providers, DfE, June 2015)
If you have any reason to feel dissatisfied or concerned with any aspect of the school, please feel free to discuss this with your child’s class teacher as a first step. If, however, the issue cannot be resolved in this way, the matter can be referred to the Phase Leader and, should this additional discussion not resolve the issue, it would then be referred to the Head of School. If by this point, you do not believe that the school has resolved your concerns, you may refer to the Governing Body of the school for further discussion by writing to the Chair of Governors, in a sealed envelope marked Private & Confidential care of the school. Our Complaints Policy is downloadable to the left on this page.
