The Prevent Duty

Here at the Arches we believe it is important and fundamental in life to be aware of and accepting of the diverse and multicultural communities within which we live on a local and national level. As part of our curriculum we provide a safe, accepting learning environment where children can ask open questions in which they can further their understanding and acceptance of different beliefs and cultures.

PREVENT forms part of the Goverments counter terrorism strategy (Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015) and aims to prevent children and young people from getting drawn into terrorism.
