Provisions need to have a clear policy on how they will promote positive behaviour and what strategies they will use to deal with inappropriate behaviour. Staff need to be aware of when and how it is appropriate to restrain a child.
Practitioners need to understand why a child might be misbehaving. This is sometimes because their physical needs are not being met and can be easily rectified, for example, if a child is overtired allowing them an additional day time nap. It may be because they are experiencing upset in their lives at home. This will require sensitive working with parents to provide the child with additional emotional support.
