The Prevent Strategy

Protecting children from the risk of radicalisation is seen as part of schools’ wider safeguarding duties, and is similar in nature to protecting children from other forms of harm and abuse.

From 1 July 2015 schools have been subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent duty.

Please find a parent leaflet explaining what the Prevent duty means for our school via the Statutory web site items page
