Recently, the Hackney Prevent Education Officer came into school to run two workshops for Secondary and Primary students.
During the first workshop where all secondary students were present, the trainer explained what the organisation Prevent does and how they work to keep communities safe including in the online space.
In the second workshop where only Year 5 and 6 students were in attendance, the session started off with students formulating their own ideas of what community is and what it means.
It was then explained to them how radical groups work to shatter the strong communities that people have worked hard to build. The primary students could understand this and talked about how hard they would work to protect those communities they are a part of.
