Since launching our schools programmes in 2017 we have worked intensively with over 200 young people at schools in Cornwall & The Isles of Scilly
Our training programmes are designed to help students and staff together to develop ways of sharing responsibility and responding well to difficult and challenging situations.
Restorative Practice contributes to
- reducing fixed term and permanent exclusions
- improving health and wellbeing
- reducing the attainment gap between disadvantaged children and others, which in Cornwall is 20% larger than the national average
I now understand how to deal with conflict and injustice so much more
I would like to help other people feel safer and happier in school.
I feel like I will respond to conflict better and the school will be better.
I liked being able to discuss difficult issues and how we can support others
It’s really helped me to consider other people’s points of view, and not just in school but about global issues too.
I feel more accepted in college and I have a better understanding of people’s emotions
This course made me more confident within myself. I am so grateful for this opportunity within school.

I have learned that there doesn’t need to be a winner and a loser
Everybody gets a chance to speak in the circle.
I can use Restorative Practice to prevent hurt.
I like saying my feelings to other people!
All training costs are subsidised by grant funding. There is a strong association with reducing inequality and narrowing the attainment gap, as well as mental health benefits, making Restorative Practice an appropriate use of pupil premium and Headstart funding. There is also clear relevance to the personal development, behaviour and welfare aspect of the Ofsted framework.
