The Prevent Duty
The Prevent duty is ‘the duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 on specified authorities, in the exercise of their functions, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.’ (The Prevent duty – Departmental advice for schools and childcare providers June 2015)
As a school we need to ensure we protect children from the risks of radicalisation and extremism through our safeguarding procedures. We also need to provide a safe environment in which controversial issues can be discussed and build our pupils’ resilience and self-esteem to enable them to challenge extremist views.
At Westfield we have made all staff aware of our responsibilities under the Prevent duty. Through our RE and PHSCE curriculum and our work on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development, including fundamental British values, we will enable children to explore a wide range of issues safely. Our staff will attend further training in this area as it becomes available. For more information see the leaflet below.
