As part of St Teresa's Catholic Primary School's ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties we are fully behind the government's Prevent Strategy.
From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools.
At St Teresa’s, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views.

Supporting children's mental health
Looking after our mental health is important and below is a link to a document that gives guidance on talking to your child about their mental health.
Criminal Exploitation: a guide to parents/carers
Private Fostering: when someone else is looking after your child
Private fostering is when someone who isn’t a close family member looks after your child for more than 28 days.
You might need to ask someone else you know to look after your child. For example, if:
- you need to stay in hospital for a while
- you’re going to live abroad
- you’re not getting on well with your child
If your child is being privately fostered or you’re planning to put them in private foster care, it’s against the law not to tell Bristol City Council.
