star this property answer text <p>The safety and welfare of children in custody is our highest priority. Restraint is only ever used as a last resort, where there is a risk of harm and no other form of intervention is possible or appropriate. However, we recognise that there are still high levels of restraint.</p><p> </p><p>In 2017, we began to implement a comprehensive reform programme with the aim of improving levels of safety in the youth custodial estate. The programme is underpinned a new evidence-based positive behaviour strategy and significant reform of the workforce. We are also taking specific actions to reduce the number of incidents of restraint, including:</p><ul><li>introducing the Minimising and Managing Physical Restraint framework in all secure training centres (STCs) and under-18 young offender institutions (YOIs). This has been specifically developed to avoid physical restraint as far as possible by using a range of de-escalation, diversion and behaviour management techniques;</li><li>requiring each public STC and YOI to implement a “Restraint Minimisation Strategy”;</li><li>reviewing data on use of force to improve recording and reporting and to improve practice; and</li><li>undertaking a safeguarding review across the youth secure estate.</li></ul><p>In addition, we have recently responded positively to the recommendations on restraint made by the Joint Committee for Human Rights.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Information on children in custody with special educational needs is collected on entry into custody by Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) and submitted to the Youth Custody Service (YCS) to inform placement decisions. Comprehensive screening and assessment is conducted for all Children and Young People across the youth justice system, allowing for early identification of needs and requirements to support their care. An initial assessment is made before the first night in custody to assess any immediate needs or requirements, this is then followed by further physical and mental health assessments.</p><p> </p><p>Of those children entering custody during 2018/19, 30% were assessed as having special educational needs or disabilities. The data presented should be considered as an indication of the needs and risks of young people as they enter the secure estate, rather than formal clinical assessment. Further assessment of the educational needs of all children continues on induction using a screening tool, and throughout their time in custody.</p>
