Early Years: H&F Prevent awareness training for nursery schools and childcare providers

Quick Navigation

Mar 11 2022

All schools and registered childcare providers are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 to have ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’. This duty is known as the Prevent duty.

You are no doubt familiar with this statutory duty, but are you unsure how to provide Prevent awareness training for staff within your early years setting?

It may interest you to know that you can call on the Hammersmith & Fulham Prevent team for support with this. Within the team, there is a Prevent Education Officer, who is at your disposal, free of charge.

To book a Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP) with your Prevent Education Officer, please visit the new page on the Learning Partnership website dedicated to the Prevent for Schools, Colleges and Childcare Providers Service.

Support offered by the Prevent Education Officer is not limited to Prevent awareness training. To help you comply with the Prevent duty and meet Ofsted requirements, they can also offer more general support, including assistance with safeguarding policies and potential referrals.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch. Contact details can be found below and in the link above.
