Respond to concerns

If settings have concerns about extremism or radicalisation or feel a child is at risk of (or subject to) harm because of these issues, follow the advice and guidance on our Report a concern about a child web page.

Prevent concern

If there is a Prevent issue, settings will be referred to the Essex Police Prevent Team for advice and guidance.

They may advise settings to make a referral using the Prevent referral form (Word, 56KB).

For support completing a Prevent referral form use the DfE Making a referral to Prevent guidance.

​Individuals referred to Prevent may be considered at a Channel Panel meeting where it will be decided whether to adopt the case.
