Restorative classroom practice.

This short booklet uses extracts from our various publications to give classroom
teachers in particular an idea of what restorative approaches might mean applied in
their day-to-day work.

Although people tend to think of restorative approaches applying only when things go
wrong, in fact the pro-active elements are by far the most important. In this regard
there is overlap with work your school may already be doing to develop active and
more participatory teaching and learning styles, social and emotional skills,
community cohesion, greater student voice and participation, and preventative
policies to minimise the risk of bullying. (excerpt)
