More than 700 disabled children ‘injured in schools while restrained’


Herald Scotland - 9 April 2017.

Hundreds of disabled children were injured in schools while being physically restrained, an investigation has found.
Pupils were pinned face down on the floor, strapped into chairs, suffered broken bones and one had their head covered with a «spit hood», according to 5 live Investigates.
There were around 13,000 restraints resulting in 731 injuries in Britain over the last three years, according to a Freedom of Information request by the programme.
Only 37 of the 207 local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales were able to provide the data, which means the actual figures could be much higher.
