Abstract

This chapter reflects on the key conclusions from across the previous
chapters. First, it discusses how the Prevent Duty has become normalised
in schools, colleges and early years provision, as professionals
incorporated it into existing structures and processes—both in the curriculum
and through safeguarding. Second, it discusses how, whilst some professionals
might have unconsciously reproduced potentially harmful
stereotypes and simplistic assumptions about terrorism and extremism,
others have consciously worked to mitigate the possible negative effects of
the Duty, and have used the curriculum to further develop values education
and opportunities for critical discussion. Third, the chapter reflects on
the implications of the apparent banalisation of Prevent within education,
and how this may or may not intersect with processes of securitisation.
