Contribute to the consultation on restraint and restrictive intervention

News - 16 September 2019

The guidance aims to help settings adopt a preventative approach to supporting children and young people whose behaviour challenges as a result of learning disabilities, autistic spectrum conditions or mental health difficulties.

The publication sets out relevant law and guidance and provides a framework of core values and key principles to support a proactive approach to supporting children and young people who have behaviour that challenges; and a reduction in the need to use restraint and restrictive intervention.

Read the guidance.

You are able to contribute to the consultation on whether there is a need for similar guidance for mainstream schools, mainstream post-16 settings and Alternative Provision; and whether guidance should apply to a wider cohort of children and young people with SEND.

The consultation closes on 17th October 2019.
