A Monifieth mum has convinced the Government to introduce new national guidelines on child restraint in Scottish schools.
In February Beth Morrison lodged a petition with the Scottish Parliament and received more than 7,000 signatures.
Her petition focused on restraint methods used on disabled children but she said the Government wants to extend the guidelines to protect all pupils in state schools.
The campaign calls for restraint to be a last resort and for every incident leading to restraint or seclusion to be recorded. Other points included regular training for staff on avoiding the use of restraint.
The 50-year-old said: “It has been a long fight and I’m absolutely delighted the campaign has been successful. I’ve been told a draft of the guidelines will be drawn up next month and I’ll have the chance to have a look at it before things are made final.”
