From 1 July 2015 specified authorities, including 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.
Schools are expected to assess the risk of children being drawn into terrorism, and be able to demonstrate both a general understanding of the risks affecting children and young people and a specific understanding of how to identify individual children who may be at risk of radicalisation and what to do to support them.
The Statutory Prevent Duty Guidance refers to the importance of Prevent awareness training to equip staff and governors to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and to challenge extremist ideas. The Home Office has developed a core training product for this purpose – Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP) and this is the training that is currently offered to the schools under the Safeguarding SLA.’
