This Policy Framework sets out the regulations and guidance for developing positive relationships and cultures across the Children and Young People Secure Estate. It includes incentivising and promoting positive behaviour, minimising behaviour that can cause harm and working effectively with unacceptable behaviour to provide a safe and controlled environment for children, young people and staff.
The Framework currently applies to England only. It replaces related sections of PSI 08-2012 Care and Management of Young People, which remains active in Wales.
This policy will be reviewed in April 2020.
