At Fossdene we use Restorative Justice to create a positive learning environment where children learn and practice the skills to regulate their own behaviour and learning.
Restorative approaches are based on four key features:
Respect – for everyone by listening to other opinions and learning to value them;
Responsibility - taking responsibility for your own actions;
Repair – developing the skills within a school community so its individual members have the necessary skills to identify solutions that repair harm;
Re-Integration - working through a structured, supportive process that resolves the issue and ensure behaviours are not repeated, allowing pupils to remain in mainstream education whilst also achieving all of the above.
