A resource package aimed at supporting schools to increase pupil’s awareness of radicalisation and helps them develop resilience.


The pack is led by a power-point presentation, with video. A set of guidance notes leads the facilitator through the power-point presentation and contains suggestions for class activities.

The Counter Terrorism and Security Act of 2015 places a duty on certain bodies to have due regard to the need to prevent terrorism. This package has been produced by Avon and Somerset Constabulary in partnership with Bristol City Council as part of their Trading with Schools materials and represents a partnership approach. The package is not specific to Bristol and may be used in any area. This lesson plan is written by qualified teachers in Bristol. The Home Office have listed it on their list of resources for countering radicalisation (Prevent) and it is listed with the Time Education Supplement website.
