The University's Safeguarding Policy aims to protect children and vulnerable adults from harm, including the risk of being drawn into terrorism.
This section contains documents and resources relating to the Government's 'Prevent' agenda and safeguarding the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. Documents contained here include Marjon's:
The ‘Prevent Duty’ refers to Section 26 of the 2015 Counter-Terrorism and Security Act which contains a duty on Universities to have ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’.
Whilst the Home Affairs Committee (2012) stated there is less of a direct link between University education and terrorist activity than previously thought, it remains part of this University’s duty of care to safeguard members of its community from being steered into a rigid and narrow ideology that is intolerant of diversity and leaves them vulnerable to future radicalisation.
If staff are concerned about a students behaviour they can be referred onto the Student Welfare Concern Group though the internal Student Welfare Concern Form.
