Freedom of Information Request

Restrictive Interventions used with Children

Received: 15 August 2019

To Whom It May Concern,

I am currently working to understand the nature and provision of restrictive interventions, as used with children, and training programmes that relate to such interventions.

I am seeking this information across all schools within your local authority and may use the information to compare practice across local authorities. It is with this in mind that I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

My questions are as follows:


1. Do schools in your local authority record incidents of restraint used by staff on pupils?

2. If yes, how many incidents of restraint were recorded in schools in your local authority in the 2018/2019 academic year? (if data is not available for this time period, please provide us with the most up-to-date statistics). If possible, please break this data down by school type:
a. Primary school
b. Secondary school
c. Alternative Provision school
d. SEND.


3. Do you record injuries that result from incidents of restraint in schools used by staff on pupils?

4. If yes, how many injuries that resulted from incidents of restraint were recorded in schools in your local authority in the 2018/2019 academic year? (if data is not available for this time period, please provide us with the most up-to-date statistics). If possible, please break this data down by school type:
a. Primary
b. Secondary
c. Alternative Provision
d. SEND.

5. Do schools in your local authority have a policy in place for a Restrictive Intervention Reduction Programme? Please provide a copy of or a link to the most recent policy.
