‘Ahmad’, a student, stopped taking part in music lessons based on his religious belief. Although he was not disruptive in lessons and was an excellent student based on behaviour and grades, he was invited to attend a meeting with the school’s PREVENT safeguarding officer. This occurred without the consent of Ahmad’s parents. Once his parent found out, they pressed the school on what had warranted the meeting with PREVENT and what had been asked of him during the meetings. The teachers either did not answer or they deflected the questions.
