Prevent Strategy


The aim of Prevent is to stop people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.


The objectives of Prevent are to:

  • tackle the ideological causes of terrorism
  • intervene early to support people susceptible to radicalisation
  • enable people who have already engaged in terrorism to disengage and rehabilitate                                                                                 


As part of the safeguarding culture at Brighton Avenue Primary School we follow the government's Prevent strategy.


From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to 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 Brighton Avenue Primary School, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views.


All staff have been trained on the Prevent strategy by leading professionals ensuring the school is well prepared to tackle any issues which may arise.
