Unsworth AcademyPREVENT Agenda
Prevent is about safeguarding. It is about the need to provide a counter narrative against radicalisation in order to identify vulnerable young people who might be at risk.
School’s PREVENT Duty
Prevent Duty Guidance was published by the government under Section 26 of the 2015 Counter Terrorism and Security Act. It places a duty on “specified authorities” to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. These authorities include schools, registered childcare providers and further education colleges.
Prevent is about safeguarding. It is about the need to provide a counter narrative against radicalisation in order to identify vulnerable young people who might be at risk. Social media has meant that the messages young people receive are much closer to home, whether they are from ISIL, white supremicists or anti-vivisectionists.
Prevent operates in a “pre-criminal” space by offering help and support to individuals at risk. It aims to help those who work with young people to spot those at risk and then have them referred to the Channel panel. This is made up of police, council, education and college representatives and it will draw up a discrete and tailored plan to help challenge that young person’s extremist views. It is not about them and us or scape-goating a particular community.
