MAPA stands for Management of Actual or Potential Aggression.  It is BILD and CQC compliant training to support staff in preventing and refusing challenging situations.  It is designed to be respectful to the needs of children and young people while ensuing they feel safe and well supported at times of distress. 

At Mill Ford all class based staff are training in MAPA and we have our own trainers on site.  Our trainers are able to deliver training to other Plymouth maintained schools but please make such requests via our outreach service (The Quay Partnership).
