Higher Education: Radicalism

Volume 715: debated on Monday 7 December 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether any schools or local education authorities are currently receiving targeted support for Prevent funding and, if so, which ones. [HL134]

Currently, no schools or local education authorities are receiving funding from DCSF for preventing violent extremism.

Some local authorities receive funding for preventing violent extremism from Communities and Local Government as part of their area-based grant. Decisions on how to spend the funding are taken locally and could be used to support schools.
