Prevent is a key strand in the government’s counter-terrorism strategy, also known as CONTEST. Local authorities are seen as having a major role to play in preventing people from being drawn into terrorist activity – whatever the ideology behind it. The aim of Prevent is to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. The government regards Prevent as a key part of CONTEST and does not believe it is possible to resolve the threats we face simply by arresting and prosecuting more people.
Schools are funded by the government through the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG). Each local authority will have a Schools Forum who advise the council on the allocation of the DSG. Members of Schools Forum are either headteachers or governors in Slough Schools. Further information about Slough Schools Forum can be found here. (Add link to Schools Forum page on council website).
