The Introduction of the Prevent Duty into Schools and Colleges: Stories of Continuity and Change

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Drawing on mixed methods research carried out with school
and college staff during 2015 and 2016, this chapter provides insight into
how the Prevent Duty ‘landed’ in schools and colleges during the first
18 months after its introduction in July 2015. The discussion centres on four key questions: (1) To what extent did staff express overall opposition
to or support for the Prevent Duty? (2) To what extent was the Prevent
Duty interpreted by staff in schools and colleges as a straightforward
extension of existing safeguarding responsibilities? (3) To what extent did
staff perceive the Duty to be exacerbating the stigmatisation of Muslim
students? (4) To what extent did staff perceive the Duty to have a ‘chilling
effect’ on classrooms and on student voices?
