Positive behaviour in schools / settings is key to academic achievement and inseparable from safeguarding, the wellbeing of children and young people / staff and all other aspects of learning. The 'Understanding and Supporting Behaviour: Safe Practice for Schools' guidance provides advice to schools on understanding behaviour, strategies to respond to difficult and harmful behaviour, physical contact and use of non-restrictive / restrictive intervention and use of restraint. The guidance document and appendices can be found on the Guidance Documents, Model Policies and Templates page.
