The Prevent Duty – What it means for schools
The Prevent Duty is an extension of the school’s duty of care. It is part of the school’s safeguarding measures.
From 1st July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty, under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, to have ‘due regard’ to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty.
In order to comply with this duty, Miss Ali and Mrs O’Neill have attended the required ‘WRAP’ training (WRAP stands for Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent). This has in turn been disseminated to the teaching staff and the Governing Body. It will also be shared with the support staff.

This advice compliments the statutory guidance and refers to other relevant advice. It is intended to help schools think about what they can do to protect children from the risk of radicalisation and suggest how they can access support to do this.
