Holy Family Catholic Primary School

Prevent Duty

The Prevent Duty -2015

Holy Family Catholic Primary School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils.  As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability.

On 1 July 2015 the Prevent duty (section 26) of The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 came into force.  This duty places the responsibility on local authorities to give due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

As part of Holy Family Catholic Primary School's commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government's Prevent Strategy.

The Headteacher, teaching staff and governors attended local authority training in March 2016.

All staff have completed the Prevent e-learning training course, provided by the Home Office, in Autumn Term 2017.
