Guidelines to promote a safeguarding approach to positive physical contact with learners with profound and complex needs

Summary

These guidelines (which can be contextualised to your own organisation) were developed to support staff in their roles working with learners with profound and complex needs at Leicester College and to protect learners within a safeguarding context. This includes: the context and importance of positive physical contact (also called touch); a Statement of Intent (The purpose of positive physical contact); guidelines for staff; and how to work collaboratively to ensure a person centred approach.
