Prevent duty

As part of Kibblesworth Academy's ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties we are fully behind the government's Prevent Strategy. 
The member of staff who leads on the Prevent Strategy is Craig Steel (Head Teacher) 
From July 1st 2015 all schools 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 for Schools. 
At Kibblesworth, we build pupils' resilence to radicalisation through promoting fundamental British values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views. You can read about what we do to promote British values here. 
The statutory guidance refers to the importance of Prevent awareness training to equip staff to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and to challenge extremist ideas. All staff and volunteers are required to undertake Prevent awareness training through The Key CPD.
