Prevent Strategy




At The Sheffield College we are proud of our diversity and our commitment to social justice, equality of opportunity, mutual respect and tolerance.

In developing our students to be effective citizens in a democratic society, it is essential the College continues its commitment to promote open debate and free expression, whilst recognising the need to challenge prejudice, eliminate discrimination and prevent radicalisation.

It is our duty to continue to safeguard our students and staff; empowering them to protect themselves from harm. The Prevent duty is therefore an integral part of the College’s Safeguarding Policy and procedures.

The College’s Prevent strategy outlines how we will meet our statutory duty.

The Sheffield College Prevent Strategy has five key objectives to ensure all students are safeguarded by:

  • Promotion and reinforcement of our core values of inclusiveness, integrity, involvement and, in so doing, promote fundamental British values;
  • Promotion of community cohesion, supporting open dialogue, supporting the student and staff voice, eliminating discrimination. These are in line with our Single Equality Scheme;
  • Safeguarding our students and staff from the risk of radicalisation, empowering students and staff to protect themselves from harm;
  • Supporting those at risk;
  • Ensuring that staff and students are aware of their responsibilities in preventing violent extremism.

The College will achieve these objectives through leadership, partnership, and by building learner resilience.
