Prevent Duty

Normand Croft Community School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our children. We believe that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other threat children might face.

All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental British values including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

On 1 July 2015 the Prevent Duty (Section 26) of The Counter-Terrorism & Security Act 2015 came into force. This duty places the responsibility on local authorities to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

As part of our commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government’s Prevent Strategy.

We’d be happy to supply paper copies of these, or any other of our school policies, upon request.
