Improving Behaviour with Restorative Approaches: Develop a learning ethos and positive relationships across your school

Improving Behaviour with Restorative Approaches: Develop a learning ethos and positive relationships across your school

Primary, Secondary
Oct 2013


What kind of a learning environment do you want to create in your school? Would you like to see less conflict, less bullying and a calmer, more respectful community? Schools that adopt restorative practices have seen transformational changes, with improved behaviour in and out of class, fewer bullying incidents, fewer fixed-term exclusions and a more productive atmosphere for learning.


With training sessions for different groups in the school community, the Improving Behaviour with Restorative Approaches resource will enable your staff to:

  • understand the key concepts of restorative practices and why they are effective
  • use restorative practice techniques in various situations
  • know how to embed restorative approaches across the school community so that a shared expectation of how to behave prevails
  • improve behaviour for pupils, staff and parents
  • evaluate the impact of introducing restorative practices.
