An element of Preventing Radicalisation (The Prevent Duty) is included within the Health & safety Awareness for Schools course.
School trips have long since been a controversial subject, this health and safety induction course reassures teachers and other school staff that children should be able to experience a wide range of activities. Health and safety measures should help them to do this safely, not stop them. It is important that children learn to understand and manage the risks that are a normal part of life. Commonsense should be used in assessing and managing the risks of any activity. Health and safety procedures should always be proportionate to the risks of an activity.
