STOP use of physical intervention in schools in Scotland

Hurry and have your say!

The Scottish Government is seeking views on new guidance on the use of physical intervention in schools.

The human-rights based guidance has been developed with input from young people, parents, carers, education staff and the Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland.

The guidance focuses on preventative support that should be in place to minimise the use of restraint and provides advice and safeguards that must be followed if restraint is used.

It also outlines forms of restraint that should never be used on children and young people.

Consultation ends 25 October
