Why use a Restorative Approach?
  • Restorative approaches are designed to
  • repair the harm done to relationships
  • consider the needs of all involved
  • help all participants recognise their
    responsibilities
  • encourage pupils to be accountable for their
    behaviour
  • support the development of emotional literacy
    and SMSC across the whole school

Restorative Approaches in schools why?
  • Targets
  • Life chances
  • Pressure on schools to reduce exclusions, improve
    behaviour and increase attainment.
  • Restorative Approaches equip young people with
    key life skills, promoting self-awareness,
    empathy and conflict resolution.
  • Anti-bullying guidance - young people who have
    been bullied do significantly worse at school
    than those who have not, according to government
    research.
