How to implement Prevent

Session details

From 1 July 2015, all schools and registered childcare providers are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent duty.

Prevent is part of the government counter-terrorism strategy, it's designed to tackle the problem of radicalisation and terrorism at its roots, preventing people from becoming radicalised and supporting terrorism or becoming involved in terrorism themselves.

Yusuf was approved by the Home Office to deliver the Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP 3) in 2015 which provides an introduction to the Prevent strategy and an individual’s role in safeguarding vulnerable children in a child care setting.

During the session, Yusuf will be showcasing a model for Prevent education at BGGS. This will be an opportunity to explore some innovative ways of delivering Prevent related activities for students in key stages 3, 4 and 5. These teaching and learning resources will centre on the themes of resilience and British Values which can be incorporated into your existing PSHE curriculum.
