Safeguarding & Prevent



Kiwi Education recognises the importance of safeguarding learners, employers, staff and visitors in our work and activities. This can only be achieved through partnership working with all stakeholders and key partners to ensure that the requirements are continually reviewed and adjusted to meet the needs of the organisation. All staff working for Kiwi Education, regardless of their seniority, understand that they must adhere to Safeguarding guidelines and policies.


If you have any Safeguarding concerns please contact us.

Prevent is a key part of the Government’s Counter Terrorism Strategy (CONTEST); its aim is to reduce the risk of terrorism to the UK, so people can go about their lives freely and with confidence.


CONTEST has four strands, often known as the four Ps:


Protect – strengthen protection against a terrorist attack

Prepare – mitigate the impact of a terrorist attack

Pursue – stop terrorist attacks

Prevent – stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism

Channel is the key element of the Prevent part of the strategy.


Channel is about safeguarding young people and adults from being drawn into committing terrorist-related activity; through partnership working and early intervention, its aim is to protect and divert people away from the risk they face before crimes occur.


Local authorities, education, health sectors, social services, children’s and youth services, offender management, the police and the local community will all work in partnership to:


1. Identify individuals at risk of being drawn into terrorism
2. Assess the nature and extent of that risk
3. Develop the most appropriate support plan for them


Education providers have both moral and legal obligations in relation to the safety of learners. These range from our duty (under Every Child Matters) to have a safe environment for learners, through to being aware of the types of situations that can create an environment where extremism can develop and taking action to reduce such possibilities.

What does this all mean?

Meanings associated with terrorism are given here in brief: Terrorism is the unlawful use of violence or threat of violence to support a belief or ideology.

Extremism is the use of extreme behaviour to support a belief or ideology. Not all extremism is harmful or criminal, but some people behave in an extreme way and go on to become terrorists. Any idea can be taken to an extreme, but when they are, they often lead to violence/harm to others.


Radicalisation is the process of someone developing extremist views which can lead them to join extreme or terrorist groups. There is no ‘one-way process’ to radicalisation, there are often many factors or experiences which leads a person to be radicalised to participate in extremist or terrorist behaviour:

What can you do?

There isn’t a magic checklist for parents/ carers/ employers to use to know what could make your young person/ ward/ employee become an extremist; but you may be the best person to notice changes in their behaviour, just as you would with other issues of concern. This is not an easy task but the following points aim to help you.



Talking is an essential part of the process for young people to explore and understand alternative points of views; talking can help them develop informed and balanced views, values and attitudes. Talking can help you make an assessment of views and understanding giving you an opportunity to clarify facts, address any distortion in their views and identify any issues of concern.




Radicalisers use the internet to ‘groom’ young people. They use sites such as Facebook, Twitter or You Tube. They may invite people to join discussions on less well-known sites such as KiK, Whisper, Yik Yak or Omegle as these are harder to monitor and easier to hide their identity.
