The Prevent Duty

The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act, which came into force on 1 July 2015, requires certain authorities, including schools, to "have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism". This is known as the 'Prevent duty'. All staff at Greatfield Park have been trained on the Prevent Duty and have regular refreshers. Protecting pupils from the risk of radicalisation is part of our wider safeguarding duties. All staff are trained to take action if they have cause for concern, as with any other safeguarding risk.
