Preventing radicalisation

Latest update to guidance

The Home Office has updated the Prevent duty guidance. These changes will come into effect on 31 December 2023 at the earliest. We'll update this elearning to reflect the changes.

There are no new legal or additional responsibilities for schools. However, the following updates have been made:

  • You should designate a staff member to oversee Prevent (although it's likely that your designated safeguarding lead (DSL) already does this)
  • Clarification that you don't need consent to share information about a pupil who might be susceptible to radicalisation

For full details about how these changes affect you, take a look at our Need-to-know and the DfE's briefing for schools.

This course is fully up to date with Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) 2023, as published by the DfE on 1 September 2023. We last updated our course on 1 September 2023.
