Protecting children from radicalisation: the prevent duty
20th July 2015

Please click to view The Prevent Duty - Department for Education advice for schools and childcare providers on preventing children and young people from being drawn into terrorism.



This advice about the ‘prevent duty’ in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 is for:

  • school leaders, school staff and governing bodies in all local-authority-maintained schools, academies and free schools
  • proprietors, governors and staff in all independent schools
  • proprietors, managers and staff in childcare settings

It will be of particular interest to safeguarding leads.

The guide ‘The use of social media for online radicalisation’ is also available to help schools.

Departmental advice helps you understand how to comply with the law or explains what our policies mean in practice. You do not have to follow the advice.
