DfE – THE PREVENT DUTY: Departmental advice for schools and childcare providers (July 2015)
The Department for Education has issued the departmental advice below to help recipients understand the implications of the Prevent Duty.
The publication can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/protecting-children-from-radicalisation-the-prevent-duty
As identified in the advice, ‘Schools and childcare providers should have clear procedures in place for protecting children at risk of radicalisation. These procedures may be set out in existing safeguarding policies. It is not necessary for schools and childcare settings to have distinct policies on implementing the Prevent duty. General safeguarding principles apply to keeping children safe from the risk of radicalisation as set out in the relevant statutory guidance, Working together to safeguard children and Keeping children safe in education.‘
The designated senior person for safeguarding at William Bradford Academy is Ms E Merry, Interium Principal.
