In 2004, as part of the ‘Better Behaviour, Better Learning’ Initiative, funding was provided by the
Scottish Executive for a two-year pilot project on Restorative Practices (RP) in 3 Scottish Local
Authorities2. The idea of RP in education in Scotland had first been introduced in a Scottish Executive
Circular on School Exclusion in 2003. A team from the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow was
commissioned to undertake an evaluation of the pilot project. In recognition of the challenge and time
required for school change and of the early benefits of RP, the Scottish Executive has extended the
period of the pilot project by a further two years. This evaluation report summarises the strengths and
achievements of the implementation of RP in the first two years, 2004-2006. (excerpt)
