Prevent Duty


St. Mary Magdalen's Catholic Junior School is fully committed to safeguarding the welfare of all its pupils.      As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability.

All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British Values, including Democracy, the Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect, and Tolerance of those with Different Faiths and Beliefs.

On 1 July 2015 the Prevent Duty (section 26) of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 came into force.  This duty places the responsibility on Local Authorities to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into Terrorism.

As part of St. Mary Magdalen's Catholic Junior School's commitment to Safeguarding and Child Protection we fully support the government's prevent strategy.
