"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 legal framework 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.
