Crisis and Aggression, Limitation and Management
Aberdeenshire Education has a policy of positive behaviour management in which it endeavours to promote the most favourable learning environment for pupils.
On rare occasions a pupil may become distressed and every effort is made to de-escalate the situation. Exceptionally it is necessary to hold a pupil gently until their crisis has passed. If this intervention is necessary parents are informed immediately and written confirmation is provided.
A number of staff in Aberdeenshire receive training from CALM Training Ltd to ensure that if such action is needed it is taken as safely and professionally as possible. These staff are reaccredited on an annual basis.
