65 Assaults Every Day in Our Schools

Violent crime is rife in schools as police record 65 cases of grievous or actual bodily harm every single school day, figures reveal.

However, many teachers are unaware of their rights, and whats just as bad is that many ‘advisory’ and ‘inspectorates’ do not have a competent understanding of the law in relation to reasonable force and the risks associated with using some techniques to restraining children.

As a result, many schools are given less than adequate advice and poor training by less than competent training providers, and what’s even worse is that when the training doesn’t work the member of staff can be made to feel that they are responsible and blamed.

We reported on this in an article on our web-site which you can see at: http://www.nfps.info/_webapp_278515/One_in_Ten_Head_Teachers_Assulated

However, the following training course can help. It has been based on competent legal advice and guidance and is therefore, very legally defensible: http://www.nfps.info/NFPS-Level-2-Award-in-The-Use-Force-To-Control-and-Restrain-Pupils
