Positive handling in schools

Positive handling in schools

Positive Handling in schools is a very serious subject.

Knowing when and how to act in a difficult situation can be the difference between a positive outcome and a potentially career ending prosecution.

The term ‘positive handling’ is used to describe reasonable force or physical restraint in schools where children may become violent or threatening towards teaching staff.


Positive handling in schools: what is covered?

This course will start by looking at some examples and statistics which highlight the seriousness and extent of aggressive pupil behaviour, it will then go on to explain how you can identify the stages of aggression and provide some tips on how you could de-escalate a pupil before they lash out.

It also looks at where the law stands on this subject and finally best practice in theory if you ever do need to restrain a pupil.

This training is just one of a wide range of health and social care courses that we offer here at UK Online Training.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
