Physical Intervention


This policy provides a framework for the use of Physical Intervention within Hadleigh Junior School and takes into account information provided in The Department for Children, Schools and Families Guidance on The Use of Force to Control or Restrain Pupils [2011].


Restrictive Physical Intervention [RPI] should only be needed in exceptional circumstances. Most situations can be de-escalated using positive behaviour management strategies that are in use within the school.
