The Prevent Duty at Trinity Specialist College

The Prevent duty is the duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 on specified authorities, in the exercise of their functions, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

Here at Trinity Specialist College, we take our responsibilities in relation to Prevent extremely seriously. Whilst it is recognised that the majority of our students would not be at risk of any form of radicalisation due to their severe learning disabilities, it must be recognised that there are a number of young people who could be at risk. As such, it is our duty to be vigilant in ensuring these young people are kept safe from radicalisation of any description and with any cause for concern being acted upon immediately by reporting concerns to the Prevent Lead at the college.

The Designated Prevent Lead is: Peter Hannah-Smith
