Prevent Duty

At The Farnley Academy, we are committed to growing young people who are positive and active participants within our community and society at large.

We have a responsibility to protect children from extremist and violent views, the same way we protect them from drugs or violence.

As of 1 July 2015 all schools have been required by law to have 'due regard of the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism' (Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act). This has become known as the PREVENT Strategy. The values which the PREVENT Strategy upholds are fundamental to our ethos evident in our culture.

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. The Home Office has developed a core training product for this purpose – Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP). All our staff have received WRAP training sessions from The Prevent Team for Leeds on what Prevent is about and how to deal with any issues they may see inside or outside school.
