Restorative Practice at BWH

Here, at our school we take a restorative approach to resolving conflict and preventing harm.

Restorative approaches enable those who have been harmed to convey the impact of the harm to those responsible, and for those responsible to acknowledge this impact and take steps to put it right.

 

Restorative approaches refer to a range of methods and strategies which can be used both to prevent relationship-damaging incidents from happening and to resolve them if they do happen. 

Being a restorative school has many benefits, including increased attendance, reduced exclusions and improved achievement.

It can also alleviate problems such as classroom disruption, truancy and poor attendance, antisocial behaviour, and disputes between pupils, their families, and members of staff.

Our school is  a community growing in faith and love together and restorative practice underpins this.

Our restorative approach has a positive impact in terms of allowing individuals to develop a better moral code by which to live their lives.  If a child cannot read, we teach them to read; if a child cannot do maths, we teach them maths…if a child does not know how to behave, we should and will, teach them.
