The Prevent Duty

What is the Prevent Duty?
The aim of the Prevent Duty is to reduce the threat to the UK from terrorism by preventing people of all ages from being drawn into terrorist activity. As part of a school's wider safeguarding duty, schools are responsible for protecting children from the risk of radicalisation. The Prevent duty requires school staff to be able to identify children who are vulnerable to radicalisation and to know how to respond to this.

Ms Leach is the Designated Prevent Lead in school and Mrs Thomas is the Deputy Designated Prevent Lead.

Ms Leach and Mrs Thomas can be contacted on safeguarding@stchads.derby.sch.uk.

All our staff have completed training on the Prevent Duty  and how to recognise and report signs of extremism and radicalisation.
