As part of Dovedale Primary School's commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government's Prevent Duty Guidance.
What is Prevent ?
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
