Prevent Strategy for Parents

The Prevent Strategy

As part of Lindsworth School's on-going safeguarding and child protection duties we are fully behind the government's   Prevent Strategy.

From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the   Prevent Duty for Schools.

The statutory guidance refers to the importance of   Prevent  awareness training to equip staff to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and to challenge extremist ideas.
