Restorative Justice in Action 1

Description

In this programme, the staff and pupils of Drayton School near Banbury introduce one of the latest behaviour management tools available to teachers.

Restorative justice is a youth justice initiative which has recently found uses within other spheres, including schools and the workplace. It encourages offenders to face up to the consequences of their bad behaviour - and ask them to suggest ways of repairing the damage they have caused.

Harriet Wall, Drayton's learning support coordinator, has been running the school's restorative justice scheme for three years after being introduced to the system by the Thames Valley Police.

The programme looks at:

  • The impact restorative justice can have in the classroom environment
  • Focusing less on instant punishment and more on encouraging children to think through the consequences of their behaviour
  • The use of restorative justice in a series of incidents involving bad behaviour
