We are pleased to inform you of our Restorative Justice Day that will take place on 9th March, 2018.
Restorative justice is a powerful approach to positive discipline and behaviour that focuses on resolving conflicts through processes that include all those involved in incidents of or where poor behaviour choices are made. This enables them to understand their own involvement and the impact of their behaviour on others. Restorative Justice shifts the focus of discipline from punishment to positive learning about the incident and the reasons for it and from the individual to the community.
During the day, the children will have the opportunity to take part in a range of engaging activities with a Personal, Social and Health Education focus, providing them with an understanding of Restorative Justice and how we intend to use this around school.
We hope to embed this practice across the school to create a restorative culture, which will underpin all we do by providing support to those involved in incidents and a positive environment in which to learn and progress, both academically and emotionally. This initiative is part of our whole school improvement plan and will lead to a greater understanding of how to deal with conflicts in their early stages and find solutions for all involved before a situation escalates to a higher level.
Please note that this approach is now part of our overall Behaviour Policy, the rest of which remains unchanged. For full details of our approach to behaviour please follow this link:
We thank you for your continued support.
