The Prevent Duty
As part of Pembridge Hall School’s ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties, we fully embrace the Government’s Prevent Duty.
From 1st July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in that they must 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 Pembridge Hall we build girls’ resilience to radicalisation and extremism by promoting fundamental British values which are defined as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and cultures. These values are embedded in our ethos, our curriculum and supporting enrichment activities.
One of the key requirements of the Prevent Duty is that staff know how to identify pupils at risk of radicalisation or extremism and the safeguarding pathways they should use. All staff at Pembridge Hall have been trained in the Prevent Duty.
