Protecting Children at Risk of Harm from Radicalisation or from Being Taken into Conflict Zones

The Department for Education has issued advice for local authorities on protecting children at risk of harm from radicalisation or from being taken into conflict zones. The advice reminds local authorities about the options that are available where there are concerns that a child might be at immediate risk of significant harm arising from radicalisation, travel to conflict zones, or involvement in terrorist activity. It also includes links to recent cases that may be relevant to local authority considerations of what actions to take, including cases involving the exercise of wardship powers under the inherent jurisdiction of the High Court (wardship).

If you have any queries about the guidance please contact Julian Butcher in Due Diligence and Counter-Extremism Group at the DfE (julian.butcher@education.gsi.gov.uk).
