Preventing and Tackling Extremism

The UK’s counter-terrorist and anti-extremism strategy has important implications for teachers and school leaders.

While the NASUWT continues to express profound concerns about this strategy, it is important that you understand how it may impact on you and the school or college within which you work.

The NASUWT has produced advice guidance on Prevent, the element of the UK’s strategy that focuses most directly on schools and colleges.

This guidance explains the legal background to Prevent, the duties it creates for staff and how concerns about the safety and wellbeing of pupils can best be addressed.
