When you support a child through an incident of challenging behaviour you may go through a ’fight or flight’ response (a release of adrenaline and other chemicals) and experience some other emotions (fear, [ anger). After the incident you may feel tired and upset, judgemental, shocked, surprised, angry, sad, glad its over.

When children start to bully other children or exclude them from playing these needs to be handle quickly children need to understand this is not acceptable behaviour this can be done with the children then and there explaining to the child how they think the other child feels. Then have a discussion over circle time so all the children can learn positive behaviour and not to bully other children. older children needs more in depth material and may need to have specialist support this can help a child over come the problem which has made the child feel they have to bully others.

The use of physical intervention is a last resort and should only be used if the child is in danger of hurting themselves or others. If in immediate danger staff can react and explain once they are safe. This can upset the child but then the children and staff are safe and no injuries have occurred. This ocassions have to be recorded on paper and parents informed on the same day.

Diversion is another approach for young children to distract them from the behaviour they are or about to display.

Children must always be treated with dignity and respect. This may be difficult when their behaviour is threatening to their peers or members of staff but it underlines the need for planning and adopting well thought-out strategies where members of staff are enabled to intervene positively.

Following an incident in which restrictive physical interventions are employed, both children and staff should be given separate opportunities to talk about what happened in a safe and calm environment, when everyone involved has regained their composure. These interviews should be designed to discover exactly what happened and the effects on those involved, and should be carried out by the line manger of the staff involved. There must also be an interview with those with parental responsibility

The interview should not be used to apportion blame or punish those involved; (if however there is clear evidence that a member of staff used force which was excessive and against agreed guidelines the line manager needs to record carefully the views of everyone concerned for possible disciplinary action).

Prompt medical attention should be given to any child or member of staff involved if significant injury or distress has been experienced. Carers and/or family members of a child should be informed of any incident and invited to contribute their views.

The line manager of the staff involved should ensure that all paperwork, including any necessary assault/incident reporting documentation, is completed accurately and in a timely manner and a de-briefing given to all those involved and other relevant individuals.
