Prevent duty

10 February 2016

During the first week of February 2016, the Islamic Human Rights Commission circulated an email to a large number of schools highlighting concerns about the Prevent duty.

To be clear, no referrals can be made to Channel about a child under 18 without the consent of the child's parents. The DfE has issued a response to the email to provide clarification to any school or college that may be worried about how they should respond to the advice in the email.
