My answer of 9 March 2015 to my honourable Friend’s previous question on this subject set out the measures taken by the department to keep children safe from the risks of extremism and radicalisation and prepare them for life in modern Britain. I would also refer my honourable Friend to the government’s response to the Education Select Committee Report: Extremism in schools: the Trojan Horse affair, which was published on 26 June (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/extremism-in-schools-response-to-education-select-committee). This both summarises the existing measures and sets out additional steps to tackle extremism and build the resilience of schools.
