The Prevent Duty
From 1 July 2015 the Prevent duty became law. This is a duty on all schools and registered early years providers to have due regard to preventing people being drawn into terrorism and other forms of radicalisation and extremism. In order to protect the children in our care, we need to be alert to any concerns about the child’s life at home or elsewhere. This includes awareness of the expression of extremist views.
We fulfil this duty by:-
-teaching and promoting British Values across the curriculum. The five British Values are:
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs (See the separate information on our website about teaching British Values)
- and by implementing school policies in areas such as Safeguarding and Child Protection, E-Safety, Equal Opportunities, Bullying, Race Equality, Behaviour and so on. Concerns identified in these areas may alert us to the issues of the type mentioned above.
