The Prevent Duty

Greenacre recognises and responds to its duty to protect our learners from the risk of radicalisation under the Prevent duty. The Designated Safeguarding Lead and their Deputy have undertaken Prevent training in line with the Prevent duty to protect children and vulnerable adults from radicalisation. All staff at Greenacre School are required to attend a workshop to raise awareness of Prevent. This forms part of a rolling programme of staff training associated with safeguarding. Please click on the link below regarding the Government’s publication on preventing children from radicalisation – The Prevent duty.
