Dealing with Violent Incidents

Created on: 12 Sep 2023

Managing challenging behaviour is a significant challenge for schools and one that is increasingly difficult to respond to as a result of insufficient resources.

In instances where challenging behaviour escalates to violence or the threat of violence, this must be dealt with swiftly and appropriately.

Violent and disruptive behaviour is a health and safety issue and we want to empower teachers to help prevent poor behaviour over time, and improve how schools and Councils respond to pupil behaviour incidents.
