During the year 2017/18, 2,426 Prevent referrals were received from the education sector. This constituted 33% of the total number of referrals during that year. The Home Office does not hold data pertaining to the proportion of the total that were university students or school children
Furthermore, this figure is likely to comprise referrals relating to groups other than university students and school children, as referrals originating from the education sector could include any individual in contact with respective institutions
During the year 2017/18, 809 Prevent referrals were received from Local Authorities. This constituted 11% of the total number of referrals during that year. Due to small numbers and the resulting risk of personal identification, we do not provide breakdowns of Prevent referral data by local authority area.
