What is a Restorative Approach?
A Restorative Approach is one which focuses on the harm caused in an incident, and helps those involved to listen to each other’s point of view and take responsibility to put things right.
Warren Wood School is part of an authority-wide project to embed Restorative Approaches. Teaching staff have received Restorative Approaches training and understand the importance of maintaining good relationships.
RA underpins our Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural curriculum and actively promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
As a Restorative School, Warren Wood concentrates on establishing respectful relationships across the whole school community, and takes steps to repair and rebuild relationships if things go wrong, so that everyone can move forward.
Our enthusiastic team of year 6’s work with the Restorative Lead teacher to learn how to repair friendships and be a non judgemental friend. Once they have completed their training, they work to a rota to support children from Nursery to Year 6 at play and lunchtimes. They use their restorative skills to ask questions and help to repair issues or find an adult for support.
