Interesting findings in this @CTPSR_Coventry research as well as moments for reflection. Despite coordinated campaigns to 'toxify' #Prevent (see pic) and concerns raised by some unions and human rights NGOs, there is not the opposition expected, but rather positive acceptance /1
👉🏽 82% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that the #Prevent Duty was about all forms of #extremism
👉🏽 "Scant evidence of expressed oppositions to the duty"
👉🏽 Rather than a "chilling effect" on classrooms, 41% said the Prevent duty had led to *more open* discussions /2
👉🏽 54.5% respondents agreed or strongly agreed that #Prevent duty is a "proportionate response to a clearly identified problem"
There were multiple comments that the duty 'helped to enhance student safety' and 'provided opportunities to reinvigorate work around citizenship' /3
Still some stark results for policymakers to consider: 57% said Muslim students more likely to 'feel stigmatised' by the duty. This is unacceptable and needs research. But I do wonder how much is caused by relentless myths and campaigns to mislead communities about #Prevent? /4
Respondents held up as absurd the idea they would refer someone for growing a beard or wearing a hijab. Their experience working with young ppl meant they were well aware of vulnerability factors and a referral involved triangulation of information, assessment and other staff /5
Encouragingly, 86% agreed or strongly agreed that "the #Prevent duty in schools / colleges is a continuation of existing #safeguarding policies".
76% were confident about implementing the duty, compared to just 9% who weren't /6
Overall a balanced yet revealing deeper dive into the #Prevent duty and schools' implementation of it. Definitely some food for thought for us to takeaway, but (yet again) some strong rebuttals for the critics who misrepresent and undermine this vital #safeguarding policy /End
