Consultation on the draft Rules and Guidelines on the use of physical restraint at registered schools and kura in New Zealand

NZNO warmly invites you to provide feedback on a new draft set of rules and guidelines on the use of physical restraint at registered schools and kura in New Zealand. The rules and guidelines have been prepared by an advisory group made up of representatives of parents, the education sector and disability communities.

The rules and guidance aim to provide practical guidance and clarity about when physical restraint can be used and how to prevent it, to better protect children and young people from harm.

Feedback is sought on:

  • how these will work in practice
  • any changes that may be needed
  • whether there are gaps or other issues to consider.

The consultation document is linked here.

Please send feedback to policyanalysts@nzno.org.nz by Thursday 24 March 2022.
