A Rights Respecting School, Alder Grange Community & Technology School in Lancashire, has been used as a case study in a new report commissioned by the Department for Education.
The report, Teaching approaches that help to build resilience to extremism among young people, presents the findings from a large-scale study of teaching practices that help to build resilience to extremism.
There are several references in the report to work being carried out by schools engaged in UNICEF UK's Rights Respecting Schools programme.
The focus of the report is on teaching methods to be used in a general classroom setting, rather than on interventions targeted at those deemed at risk of extremism.
