The Prevent Duty Act imposes a duty on schools and colleges, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

More than ever it is essential that schools and educational establishments have the correct filtering and security in place to safeguard their students or they may face repercussions from Ofsted and other governmental bodies.


Ofsted needs to know how any the schools will identify strange behaviour and what the safeguarding representative does to protect the students.


VSL can provide the approved solution so that schools comply with the Prevent Duty Act. Without the correct filtering, reporting and safeguarding representatives, your organisation will receive a negative score within the Ofsted report.
