Physical intervention should only be used when there is an imminent threat of physical harm or danger to others; and where such action (ie to physically restrain or seclude) would be considered reasonable in all the circumstances and there is no less restrictive means of responding in the circumstances.
The decision about whether to use physical restraint or seclusion rests with the professional judgment of the staff member/s involved, who will need to take into account both their duty of care to their students, their right to protect themselves from harm and obligations under the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006.
We all have to ensure that what we do is centred on children having a positive environment to live and learn in, and one where staff interact positively with children. We recognise that all staff and volunteers that work with Children and young people have a duty of care to keep children, young people, colleagues and themselves safe.
Therefore, we have developed a training process that is designed to support numerous settings regardless of your staff team numbers. The training process has been designed to cater for large staff teams, lone workers, group workers and transient workers who move around frequently within an agency setting.
What we offer:
• Accredited De-escalation and Physical Intervention training programme
• Personalised training programmes in safety and behaviour
• Policy and procedure support
• Verified physical intervention techniques
• Scenario-based training
