The Prevent Duty And its implications for schools

On December 22nd 2015 the Department for Education launched a consultation on revisions to the statutory guidance on keeping children safe in education. 

A key focus of the consultation is online safety and the threat posed from extremist material. School leaders have become increasingly aware of the risks to pupils, staff and the wider community of radicalisation.

To assist schools with their response to this consultation and in satisfying their duty to prevent pupils from being drawn into terrorism, Grebot Donnelly and Winckworth Sherwood have produced a White Paper which seeks to offer advice, observations and specific comments from a legal and PR perspective.
