Positive Handling in Schools

Our 1-day certified Positive Handling training course is designed for any educational staff who work with children and young people. The course was developed specifically for 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.
