How do I set up and log Physical interventions?

A physical intervention is a physical action, often a restraint, which is used by school staff on a student. Physical interventions are used as a last resort when other de-escalation methods (such as reasoning with the student) have failed.

Defining physical intervention methods

Intervention methods can be defined by going to: Students> Behaviour> Setup.

To add a physical intervention method: Go to the Behaviour Setup screen and click ‘+ Add’ in the ‘Physical Intervention Methods’ section.

To amend or delete a physical intervention method: Select the physical intervention in the Behaviour Setup screen and press the ‘Edit’ button on the slide over.

Note:  A physical intervention method cannot be deleted once it has been assigned to a physical intervention incident.

 

Adding a physical intervention to a new behaviour incident

Note: it is not possible to use the physical interventions workflow until at least one physical intervention method has been defined.

A physical intervention can be logged at the same time as logging a behaviour incident.

The students marked as involved in a physical intervention must also be marked as involved in the behaviour incident.

If a physical intervention has been recorded in the behaviour incident, the user will be taken to the incident summary and will be able to fill in a narrative.

If a member of staff is marked as ‘involved’ in a physical intervention, they will be alerted and asked to provide a witness statement.

 

Adding a physical intervention to an existing behaviour incident

A physical intervention can be added to an existing behaviour incident by clicking ‘+ Add’ in the Physical Interventions section of the behaviour incident screen.

Adding a narrative

After a physical intervention has been logged, a banner on the behaviour incident screen will remind the current user that they need to provide a narrative.

Clicking on the banner’s links will open a slide over and allow the user to easily add a narrative.

Recording a witness to a physical intervention

Witnesses can be added to a physical intervention by selecting the physical intervention from the behaviour incident screen and selecting the ‘Add Witness’ button. When a member of staff is selected as a witness, they will be notified.

Responding as a witness

If a member of staff is marked as a witness, they will be notified via Arbor’s notifications centre, and via email. When the user clicks on the notification, they will be taken to the behaviour incident screen and a banner will instruct them to add a witness statement.
