What is a restorative approach in education?


If we get relationships right in education, it can make a huge difference to all stakeholders. As Rita Pearson said “education is relationships”, and the quality of your relationships determines the quality of your life. 

Restorative approaches is an ethos; the culture of a school. One where you’ll find calmness, respect, patience, and understanding of others.

It supports many different approaches from Thrive, to ELSA, to being trauma-responsive.

Wales Restorative Approaches Partnership support schools to be a more positive place to work. A place where there is less conflict, less tension, and improved wellbeing for everyone.

Secondary School Teacher

I have thoroughly enjoyed the course. I have been teaching for over 25 years and was starting to feel a little run down by it but this training has rejuvinated me, thank you!

Head Teacher, Primary School

This is exactly what we were after as a school. Since the pandemic, we have been struggling to get the children settled back into school and re-connect them back together. This INSET day has given some great tools to use and really made staff think about their relationships. Staff have been really positive about it all day. Looking forward to seeing circles next Monday around the school! Thank you.

School Governor

I’m really pleased to see our school taking on this initiative. We’ve been struggling with some behaviours for a while and I think this will really help with a consistent approach for the team.
