The practical course covers:
- Holding strategies
- Escorting techniques to allow the safe removal of pupils from classrooms for example
- Breakaway and disengagement techniques including strategies for reducing the associated risks of biting and hair pulling
This session places a clear emphasis on avoidance and gives staff an overview of their rights and responsibilities in relation to their duty of care, both to themselves and to the pupils.
