The Prevent Duty came into effect from 1 July 2015 and as a public body we are subject to the duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of our functions, to have ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’.

St Wilfrid's CE Primary School  seeks to protect children and young people against the messages of all violent extremism including, but not restricted to, those linked to Islamist ideology, or to Far Right / Neo Nazi / White Supremacist ideology, Irish Nationalist and Loyalist paramilitary groups, and extremist Animal Rights movements.  The current threat from terrorism in the United Kingdom may include the exploitation of vulnerable people, to involve them in terrorism or in activity in support of terrorism.  The normalisation of extreme views may also make children and young people vulnerable to future manipulation and exploitation.  St Wilfrid's CE Primary School  is clear that this exploitation and radicalisation should be viewed as a safeguarding concern.  Prevention work and reductions of risks will include the RE curriculum, SEND policy, worship time policy, the use of school premises by external agencies, integration of pupils by gender and SEN, anti-bullying policy and other issues specific to the school’s profile, community and philosophy.

If you have a concern linked to Prevent it is helpful in the first instance to speak to the Safeguarding lead (Mrs Miller or Mrs Budgett ).
