The Prevent Duty
The Government has defined extremism in the Prevent strategy as: "vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs." The Prevent strategy includes all forms of terrorism and non-violent extremism, which can create an atmosphere conducive to terrorists, and can popularise views which terrorists may exploit.
The strategy involves preventing people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism by challenging extremist ideas where they are used to legitimise terrorism and are shared by terrorist groups. The school is required to have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism."
Please read the attached Prevent risk assessment which outlines possible risks relating to this and strategies the school has in place (which includes the promotion of British values) to mitigate such risks.
