How does the updated Prevent Duty Guidance affect early years providers?

A

The Prevent duty requires all schools and registered childcare providers in England and Wales to help prevent the risk of people supporting terrorism or becomingĀ terrorists. The Prevent Duty Guidance has now been updated to reflect several recommendations of an independent review.

The Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed that there are no new legal requirements or additional responsibilities for early years providers and schools but settings should continue to understand their Prevent duty requirements as part of their wider safeguarding responsibilities as outlined in Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE). The updated guidance will come into force on 31 December 2023 at the earliest, subject to parliamentary procedure.
