‘No Safe Place’ is published by the Children’s Commissioner in Scotland – a damning indictment of the use of restraint and seclusion in Scotland’s schools. It calls for dedicated guidance on restraint for schools. The Scottish government respond by saying that it will update existing guidance.
CALM leads a campaign and e-petitions in partnership with parent groups. CALM write letters to the Scottish government. The Scottish government review their position and announce that they will produce guidance. CALM is invited to be in the working party which begins work in 2019 and is currently ongoing.
