Secondary School Prevent resources

The SLS Prevent offers FREE training courses on Prevent for Schools, Academies and Colleges.

Please ensure you make yourself familiar with these lessons prior to teaching each unit, and ensure your read the Secondary Prevent Resources guidance letter before you start.

Only teach lessons you feel comfortable delivering and know will be beneficial to your students.

Lessons for Secondary Schools

These resources are intended as a toolkit to help teachers manage some difficult subjects. They will not be enough to ensure your school is dealing with the Prevent agenda. Instead they are designed to complement the good work that already takes place throughout the borough. These are resources that will be continually updated and improved.

These lessons are not designed to tell students what to think, they are simply designed to get them thinking. Please amend the lessons as you see fit. You are encouraged to add/remove slides at your discretion, or use the blank templates in the useful documents section of this page to make the lessons more relevant to your students. Teacher notes can also be found in the comments section of the PowerPoint.
