Positive Handling in Schools

Approved by CPD

Knowing when and how to act in a problematic situation can differentiate between a positive outcome and a potential career-ending prosecution.

This course will examine some examples and statistics highlighting the seriousness and extent of aggressive pupil behaviour. It will then explain how to identify the stages of aggression and provide some tips on how to de-escalate a pupil before they lash out. It will also look at the law on this subject and, finally, the best practice in theory if you ever need to restrain a pupil.

Our course will provide delegates with the relevant information to understand pupils’ needs and how to make the right decision in a hostile situation to provide the correct physical intervention to diffuse the situation.

Modules Covered

The aggression curve, the SCARF model, government advice and guidance, decisions regarding the duty of care, the law, physical intervention and restraint, screening, searching, and confusion.
