The purpose of the policy is to enable settings to exercise their duty of care to children, young people and staff and have regard to the legislation regarding behaviour management approaches. Particular guidance is provided on the use of force and restrictive physical intervention as well as de-escalation approaches and positive behaviour management. There is also reference to restorative approaches and accredited training that supports the management of challenging behaviour in settings.

Safeguarding, terrorism and radicalisation
Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism and is one of the four elements of CONTEST, the government’s counter terrorism strategy. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. Prevent Duty Guidance sets out the local authority's duties under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, alongside the roles of schools, registered childcare providers, health, police and other agencies, with specific guidance directed at further and higher education institutions.
The Council seeks to work with the community and partners to ensure that vulnerable adults and young people are identified, supported and diverted from becoming involved in extremism.
