Prevent Duty



The Prevent duty became law in 2015-it relates to the Counter Terrorism and Security Act. It places the responsibility on all schools to have regard for preventing children being drawn into terrorism or extremist views. At Our Lady and St Patrick's Catholic Primary School, we protect the children in our care by being alert to any reason for concern in the child's life at home or elsewhere. We promote British values embed this throughout our curriculum, focusing on Mutual Respect, Tolerance, Democracy. Liberty and the Rule of Law.
