PREVENTING RADICALISATION: The Prevent duty
All schools and colleges are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 (the CTSA 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
In order for schools to fulfil the Prevent duty, it is essential that staff are able to identify children who may be vulnerable to radicalisation, and know what to do when they are identified. Protecting children from the risk of radicalisation should be seen as part of the schools' wider safeguarding duties, and is similar in nature to protecting children from other harms ( e.g. drugs, gangs, neglect, sexual exploitation), whether these come from within the family or are the product of outside influences.
Schools can also build pupils' resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British Values and enabling them to challenge extremist views.
