The Prevent Duty will be included in early years inspections from September 2015 and is therefore integral to the running of your setting.
The Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 came into effect earlier this year. One of its provisions was to place a duty on certain specified authorities and organisations to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. This duty is known as the ‘Prevent Duty’ and came into force on 1 July 2015.
