The government will launch a website for teenagers taking aim at "twisted ideologies" as part of its drive against extremism in the UK.

Education secretary Nicky Morgan will give a speech to the Bethnal Green Academy in east London on Tuesday (19 January) to announce the "educate against hate" website to help parents and teachers identify potential victims of radicalisation.

The website will warn parents and teachers about "excessive time spent online or on mobile phones" as well as being wary of children with a "susceptibility to conspiracy theories and a feeling of persecution".

Morgan will say: "We are determined to keep children safe in and out of school. Today's announcement of resources and tougher powers to protect young, impressionable minds from radical views sends a clear message to extremists: our children are firmly out of your reach."

She will outline plans to make schools help stop teenagers travelling abroad to fight alongside groups like Isis. Plans include making sure that schools tell local authorities about pupils who stop coming to school.

Bethnal Green Academy was the centre of headlines in 2015 when four of its pupils fled to become "jihadi brides" in Syria.

The Government's drive to push for greater integration of the Muslim community into the UK is gathering pace. Earlier, Prime Minister David Cameron had raised the issue of whether Muslim women should wear veils in schools, courts and other institutions.

He told BBC Radio 4: "When you are coming into contact with an institution or you're in court, or if you need to be able to see someone's face at the border, then I will always back the authority and institution that have put in place proper and sensible rules."

The Daily Telegraph reported that ministers are drawing up guidance which will ban gender segregation in public meetings held in buildings owned by town halls, following concerns that Muslim men and women were separated in meetings in the run up to the election.

David Cameron was criticised as for his announcement to try to get the 22% of Muslim women in the country who do not speak English to take language classes.

He faced a backlash and accusations that he was "stigmatising a whole community" for suggesting that Muslim women who did not speak English needed to take lessons.
