Prevent is part of the UK’s counter terrorism strategy and aims to prevent people from becoming involved in terrorism or supporting terrorism.

On 1st July 2015 the UK government introduced a new Prevent Duty as a part of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 which places a duty on all statutory bodies, including Langtree School, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

The government has developed a website, Educate Against Hate, to give parents, teachers and school leaders practical advice on protecting children from extremism and radicalisation.
