Nicky Morgan has announced a package of new measures to assist schools in tackling extremism.
This includes a new website, Educate Against Hate. It contains practical advice on extremism and radicalisation, including information on the warning signs of danger, how parents should talk to children about extremism, and steps concerned parents should take. It also includes guidance on hosting speakers on school premises.
Following a number of hoax bomb threats in schools in January, the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) has issued guidance to schools on reviewing security measures and procedures.
