Prevent - Berwick Academy's "Not in our Community"Signposting Tutor Activities 2016-17

At Berwick Academy we are delivering a number of PREVENT awareness activities during Tutor Time on Tuesdays.  These activities have been planned to ensure that Berwick Academy students are aware of where they can seek advice and guidance on a number of safeguarding topics.


Tutor time will be an opportunity for Form Tutors to use Northumbria Police's Website to provide advice and guidance on a number of topics.  Some of these topics will be explored in greater detail as part of the Berwick Academy IAG (Information, Advice and Guidance) programme and through the delivery of assemblies.  Berwick Academy will be using nationally recognised resources, 'Where's The Line?' to deliver topics such as Radicalisation and Extremism.

'British Values' will form part of our themes of the week and will also form part of our weekly assembly and Tutor Time programme.  Form Tutors will be signposted to short videos that cover the themes of British Values thoughout the year.

Berwick Academy completed a SMSC Audit (Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural) in September 2016, which clearly highlights where SMSC values are to be delivered across the whole school and wider curriculum.
