Protective Behaviours

At Greenfields Specialist school for Communication there are two trained specialist practitioners of protective behaviours, who also sit on the protective behaviours' association council. Protective behaviours is an approach to personal safety, that encourages self- empowerment, raises self-esteem and helps to avoid being victimised.

Protective behaviours and the two themes are shared, and information is given regarding the seven strategies to all new staff through the process of induction. Everybody has a responsibility for ensuring the language of safety is used and embedded across the school promoting feelings of safety amongst all.

Pupils each have a protective hand where they are able to, with support as required, identify people whom they can talk to/ communicate with when feeling unsafe. The protective hands form part of the pupils' network review, where they are able to review people with whom they could communicate with.
