Introducing Restorative Practice into School Communities

Introducing Restorative Practice into School Communities

A set of three workshops on introducing Restorative Practice into school communities.

What is Restorative Practice? 

  • It is a set of tools underpinned by a philosophy of mutual respect.

Who is RP for?

  • It can be used across a whole school community, embedded as a positive code of behaviour.
  • It can be a highly effective tool for individual teacher classroom practice. Promoting a positive learning environment and reducing the stress for teachers and their students.

An introduction to Restorative Practice.

  • The principals underpinning RP.
  • The rationale for using RP. Experiences from Ireland and internationally.
  • What is restorative language?
  • A taster of simple tools and strategies to get you started with you own practice.

Building my personal practice.

  • Getting to grips with a restorative mindset.
  • Responding rather than reacting. The restorative tool kit.
  • Restorative Circles in the classroom,
  • An introduction to some basic classroom tools to get you started tomorrow.

A comprehensive resource pack will accompany each workshop. There will be opportunities to practice the techniques and ask questions.
