Prevent Duty

At Little Legends we promote the British Values of Prevent. Since 1 July 2015 all schools and childcare providers have been 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.

The British Values give the children a sense of social and moral responsibility and helps them develop an understanding of how they can contribute positively to society. The British Values are:-

  • Democracy: making decisions together, for example giving opportunities to develop enquiring minds in an atmosphere where questions are valued.
  • Rule of law: understanding rules matter as cited in Personal Social and Emotional development for example collaborating with children to create rules and codes of behavior.
  • Individual liberty: freedom for all, for example reflecting on their differences and understanding we are free to have different opinions
  • Mutual respect and tolerance: treat others as you want to be treated, for example sharing and respecting other's opinions.
