Prevent Duty

Prevent Duty

From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.

This duty is known as the Prevent duty.

All teaching staff at St. Louis Academy have undertaken Prevent duty awareness training in order to identify children who may be vulnerable to radicalisation, and know what to do when they are identified.
