Understanding the new Restrictive Practices Policy

nsw government logo

The Restrictive Practices Policy is part of the Inclusive, Engaging and Respectful schools policy package and builds on schools work in improving student behaviour and inclusive education for students with disability to meet the learning needs of all students.  

From Term 1, 2023 schools will begin the staged implementation of the new Restrictive Practices Policy, procedures and framework. The policy brings consistent practice and clear guidance across NSW public schools on the use of restrictive practices.

If your child needs a restrictive practice to keep them healthy and safe at school, school staff will work together with you and your child to understand their needs and plan how the school will meet those needs.
