The vocal or active opposition to our fundamental values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and the mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.

We also regard calls for the death of members of our armed forces as extremist.

This service is for anyone who has concerns over the welfare of children and young people in an educational setting.
