From 1 July 2015, all schools have had a statutory duty to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. This is referred to as the 'Prevent duty'.
Furthermore, schools must have regard to statutory guidance issued in relation to the Prevent duty. The DfE has published advice on the Prevent duty which sets out the implications for schools and signposts a number of resources available.
