What is the Prevent Duty?
The Prevent duty requires all education providers ‘to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’. This means that we teach children to uphold the values of democracy, the rule of law and the tolerance of those of differing beliefs. This includes safeguarding children, young people and adult learners from extremist ideologies and radicalisation.
Most importantly, providers should consider the needs of children, young people and adult learners at each stage of the safeguarding process. Providers should consider radicalisation concerns in line with their existing safeguarding processes, skills and experience.
Our Prevent Lead is Edward Ferguson.
