Physical Restraint @ Birkdale Primary School

1. Guidelines issued by the Secretary

2. All non-teaching staff members have been authorised to use physical restraint as a last resort. This is because all adults participate in activities that involve the safety of students e.g. duties, first aid etc.

3. You can find our Physical restraint and Reducing Distress policies on our School Doc website (login details above).
