The Prevent Duty

The Prevent Duty

The Department of Education has asked schools to help them safeguard pupils from the risks of extremism and radicalisation.  These risks have been brought into sharp focus by recent reports of school-aged children travelling to Syria.

Schools must have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

As such schools have been asked to draw your attention to the following websites:-

http://www.preventtragedies.co.uk – there are online resources produced by civil society groups which provide valuable advice for example “Families Matter”.

http://www.familiesmatter.org.uk – run by Families against Stress and Trauma

The School has already built information regarding this into the PHSE programme.
