The Prevent Duty
Springwell Learning Community recognises and responds to its duty to protect our learners from the risk of radicalisation under the Prevent duty. The Designated Safeguarding Lead and their Deputy have undertaken Prevent training in line with the Prevent duty to protect children and vulnerable adults from radicalisation. All staff at Springwell Learning Community are required to attend a workshop to raise awareness of Prevent. This forms part of a rolling programme of staff training associated with safeguarding.
