The Prevent Duty

0114 273 4450 (Office hours are: 8.45am to 5.15pm
Monday – Thursday and 8.45am to 4.45pm Friday) or email sscb@sheffield.gov.uk

The Prevent duty is the duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 on
specified authorities, in the exercise of their functions, to have due regard to the
need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. In order to protect children
in your care, you must be alert to any reason for concern in the child’s life at home or
elsewhere. Prevent works to stop individuals from getting involved or supporting
terrorism or extremist activity. Radicalisation is a psychological process where
vulnerable and/or susceptible individuals are groomed to engage into criminal,
terrorist activity.

The Prevent Programme is designed to safeguard people in a
similar way to safeguarding processes to protect people from gang activity, drug
abuse, and physical and sexual abuse. Staff at nursery have received Prevent
training and updates are included in our Safeguarding training at least annually.
