Search, Screen and Confiscate for Schools
Schools have a responsibility under health and safety legislation to minimise risks to pupils, staff and visitors, and they have statutory powers to make rules about pupil behaviour to facilitate this. Both searching and screening contribute to the safety of the school by enabling staff to identify and remove prohibited items such as weapons and alcohol.
This course covers:
- who can search and when?
- what you can search for the consent and without consent
- the statutory prohibited items
- items the school can ban at their own discretion
- examples of reasonable grounds for conducting a search
- the extent to which the staff can search
- how to conduct a search
- what to do if a pupil refuses to co-operate with a search
- different types of screening
- what staff should do with confiscated items
- what to do with electronic devices found during a search
- recording and reporting searches
- what the law says about searching, screening and confiscation
- good practice

What customers say
EduCare provides a clear and simple mechanism to train staff in a variety of crucial and mandatory areas. Staff numbers continue to grow and time to deliver training face-to-face is becoming ever scarcer due to increased legislation.
