St Anne’s College acknowledges that under Section 26(1) of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act (2015) it has a duty, when exercising its functions, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

In order to discharge this duty this document and a range of other policy and procedural documents have been reviewed by the College PREVENT Working Group and presented for approval by the Governing Body. These documents arise from a risk assessment process which has been reviewed by the Governing Body and are prepared following guidance provided by HM Government, the Higher Education Funding Council (England) (HEFCE) and the Conference of Colleges.

Arising from its risk assessment, the College PREVENT Working Group takes the view that the strength of support arrangements in the College, the character of the College community itself and existing procedures are such as to require only minor adjustments to its policies and procedures to meet the requirements of the PREVENT duty.
