Going Too Far? is an interactive classroom resource developed by the Department for Education and London Grid for Learning, which aims to help students understand extremism and how certain online behaviour may be illegal or dangerous. The resource for secondary school pupils aims to promote critical thinking and build resilience using recent case studies with discussion stimuli so young people can:

  • Explore the techniques used by extremists and evaluate digital content, to help make positive choices about who/what is trustworthy online.
  • Challenge extremist narratives.
  • Consider the consequences of their actions and take a positive stand.

All activities have cross-curricular relevance, facilitate a whole-school approach in line with RSHE guidance, Keeping Children Safe in Education, and link to statements in the UKCIS Education for a Connected World framework.
