Restorative Practice

Restorative Practice aims to ensure that we all learn to build and uphold respectful and collaborative relationships that make a difference to our well-being. We believe that children with a consistently high well-being are more open to learn and participate within school, improving their academic achievements. Restorative Practice helps us to form respectful relationships and therefore feel more confident, open and happy.

A number of pupils have received training in school on Restorative Practice. When anyone has a problem with their friendships, the Restorative Leaders will encourage the pupils involved to talk about what has happened and how this has effected everyone’s feelings. Those involved then have the opportunity to start to restore the broken relationship. By doing this it will help us all to become more responsible for our actions and we will start to learn from our experiences.

The restorative Leaders have been trained to ask open questions to engage the pupils:

  • “What happened?”
  • “Who has been affected by this?”
  • “How do you think the other person feels?”

Everybody gets to have their say and then finally, each person involved is encouraged to consider what is expected of them:

  • “What needs to happen to make this right?”
  • “How can we stop this from happening again?”

 

The Restorative Leaders have already helped a large number of pupils with their friendships, and have done so very professionally. They are proving themselves to be patient, kind and thoughtful people and should be very proud of the way they are viewed by staff and pupils alike.
