"Very friendly instructors and clear objectives. Knowledge of a school environment and its challenges meant that appropriate information was disseminated. It was highly relevant to a school setting."

Sam Kenny, Headteacher, Boldmere Infant & Nursery School 

Positive Handling Twilight Sessions

We recognise that staff training days are a very precious commodity. School Positive Handling offer flexible training solutions where negotiated training plans can be offered over a series of staff meetings. Our twilight sessions ensure staff:

Session 1

  • Develop a basic awareness of emotional regulation, fundamental de-escalation skills and the neurological effects of anger and aggression;
  • Gain a basic understanding of the current legal framework and guidance relevant to the use of Reasonable Force in educational establishments including the Common Law, Criminal Law Act 1967,  Human Rights Act 1998, Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Education & Inspections Act 2006. 


Session 2

  • Recognise the risks associated with physical restraint and how to minimise those risks;
  • Understand what the DFE Guidance on 'The use of Reasonable Force’ says in relation to physical restraint in schools, including recommendations of holds NOT to be used;
  • Risk assess their own safety when dealing with a potentially aggressive or violent pupil;
  • Differentiate between holding, escorting and restraining;
  • Know, practise and evaluate legally compliant and medically assessed holds and techniques including how to relax a restraint and disengage safely;
  • Know and understand the requirements for recording any use of restrictive force and how the information can be used to inform Behaviour Plans/Risk Assessments.

The focus of training can be altered to meet your staff and school training needs.
