The legislation established a statutory duty of care, the Prevent duty, for all UK educational establishments to ensure that they are taking proactive steps to identify any students who may be at risk of being drawn into extremism or influenced by the processes of radicalisation.

When Microsoft released Windows XP in 2001, no one could have predicted that it would still be in use in 2013. Windows XP is Microsoft’s most successful operating system and is still on over 30 per cent of all desktop computers. However, as of 8th April 2014, Microsoft will officially stop supporting Windows XP and will be providing no further updates to the operating system.
