New Restraint Powers

Description

Mike Baker and Sheena McDonald discuss teachers' powers of restraint under the Education and Inspections Act 2006.

They explain why the changes were needed, and how they make the powers more explicit for teachers.

Mike also points out that while the law grants teachers the right to use "reasonable force" as a last resort, it does specify that the context of each particular situation must be taken into account.

Examples of restraints teachers could use are demonstrated in the studio by conflict management specialist Tim Cooke.
