This level of commitment is associated with multiple benefits and impacts and can lead to achieving the Quality Mark of the Restorative Justice Council.|
|Parents||Work with the wider community which may involve restorative approaches to neighbourhood disputes. We are especially keen to work with groups of parents who want to support their children’s social and emotional education through restorative approaches, and with schools who want to relate to parents using this model.|
Costs can be subsidised through grants.
Your school may be eligible for full or part subsidies. There is a strong association with reducing inequality and narrowing the gap, also with mental health benefits, so restorative practice is an appropriate use of pupil premium and Headstart funding. Please get in touch for more information.
