Positive Handling in Schools

Our 1-day Positive Handling training course is designed for any educational staff who work with children and young people. The course was developed considering the physical intervention and de-escalation needs in schools and is delivered nationally in both primary and secondary schools settings.

Learning Outcomes
Your staff will learn:
  • Diffusion and De-Escalation strategies for disruptive pupils.
  • DfE Guidance on “The Use of Reasonable Force with Pupils”.
  • Integrated non-contact and contact graduated incident flow.
  • Inherent risks of a restrictive intervention and how to reduce them.
  • Health & Safety considerations “Duty of Care”.
  • Non-harmful and least intrusive approaches to control a child at risk to themselves or others.
  • Positive Handling Holds and Restraint Techniques for Non-Harmful Control of Children and Young People.

We specialise in the education sector and can modify elements of our delivery to ensure your staff receive relevant guidance, specific to their setting, e.g. primary, secondary or early years settings.

Uniquely, we blind test the feedback we receive electronically after every event. So individual delegates and clients have the opportunity to communicate freely with us on how we can improve. We receive very favourable feedback consistently.

  • Deputy Heads

The trainer delivered the course confidently and his knowledge on the subject was excellent. The course took place at the end of the school day but the pace enabled strong learning and enjoyment too! Delegate John Clewarth, Scissett Middle School, March 2017.

I really enjoyed the Positive Handling course I attended, the course has given me confidence in dealing with difficult situations and I feel I will be more in control – thank you! Delegate Heidi Hurst Westfield Infant School, March 2017.
