The new Extremist Bill includes a mandate that schools will have a greater care of duty as part of Prevent, the government’s anti-radicalisation scheme, which has been described as “toxic” in the past because of the mistrust it fosters in the Muslim community.
Alison Phipps from Brighton wrote on Twitter today to point out that her two-year-old son’s nursery school had emailed to say it was going to start ‘promoting British values’ in order to comply with the new Prevent measures.
She asked the nursery administrators which behaviours parents should be on the look-out for.
