Overview
PIPS training is aimed at all staff working in Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Special Schools and Alternative Provisions.

It aims to support staff in developing a consistent, effective and acceptable team approach to managing behaviour, while, crucially, maintaining positive relationships and minimising risk for all.

Module 1: Prevention and De-escalation
This explores the key issues surrounding challenging behaviour and emphasises the importance of positive, preventative verbal and non-verbal de-escalation strategies.

This module includes work on:
- Values
- The Emotional Impact of Challenging Behaviour
- Help Protocol
- The Prevention Continuum
- Positive Prevention Strategies/Strategies to Avoid
- Systems and Structures in School
- Individual Behaviour Care Plans

Module 2: Passive Intervention and Prevention
This promotes the least intrusive, most caring handling strategies and explores a continuum of passive techniques designed to keep both pupils and staff as safe as possible based on “making movement safe” rather than “overpowering”.

This module includes:
- Legislation and Guidance
- Reporting and Recording
- Principles Underpinning Passive Intervention
- Moments of Crisis
- Personal Space
- Following Movement
- Guiding and Escorting
- Standing, Sitting, Kneeling 

Expected Outcomes from the Two Modules:

- explore how these acts of care combine with calming, diffusing and problem solving strategies
- experience passive intervention strategies designed to follow rather than force movement
- identify key elements for developing a consistent team approach to managing challenge
- improve knowledge and understanding around Risk Assessment
- increase awareness of the importance of recording and reporting, monitoring and evaluating
- provide a process of repair and reflection for both staff and children
- develop an increased sense of confidence at times of crisis
