Issue 2 - Restorative Practices
• restoring good relationships when there has been conflict or harm;
• developing school ethos, policies and procedures that reduce the possibilities of such conflict and harm.
Experience has shown that Restorative Approaches provide a useful and effective short to medium term way of responding to incidents in schools, and that regular use of these approaches helps to develop pupils’ understanding of the consequences of problematic behaviour and to reduce its frequency and severity.
