The Prevent Duty is... From 1st July 2015, all 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 is usually referred to as the Prevent Duty. At the centre of the duty is a requirement to identify children and young people who may be vulnerable to radicalisation. Schools must be aware of the steps they should take when such children and young people have been identified.
At Milton Abbot School we have very clear systems and a strong message: Everyone has a duty to safeguard children and protect them from harm. We discuss safeguarding issues every week at staff meetings, sharing information and concerns to ensure we have a safety net to stop our children falling into harm. The Prevent Duty is regularly discussed and is promoted in poster form in every classroom, which reads: 'Notice, Check, Share'. All concerns are reported.
