Positive Handling Policy (2023)

At Orchard Primary School the safety and welfare of our pupils, employees and visitors to the school is of the utmost importance. This policy has been created to ensure that, should the situation arise, staff and parents are aware of the correct procedures in the use of force to restrain or physically direct a child, regarded as a last resort when there is no realistic alternative. It is designed to help staff to ensure that any actions they take are reasonable, proportionate and absolutely necessary.
