If a child is suffering or likely to suffer from harm, or in immediate danger, appropriate action will be taken. Where there is a concern, the DSL will consider the level of risk and decide which agency to make a referral to. This could include Channel, the government’s programme for identifying and supporting individuals at risk of being drawn into terrorism, or Brent Family Front Door.

The Department for Education also has a dedicated telephone helpline, 020 7340 7264, which school staff and governors can call to raise concerns about extremism with respect to a pupil. You can also email counter.extremism@education.gov.uk. Note that this is not for use in emergency situations.

In an emergency, call 999 or the confidential anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321 if you:

  1. Think someone is in immediate danger
  2. Think someone may be planning to travel to join an extremist group
  3. See or hear something that may be terrorist-related
