I have been the Head at Clifton
Children’s Centre for three and a
half years. I attended an
‘Introduction to Restorative
Practice’ course during my first
year in post. I can clearly
remember the feedback I shared
at the end of the day: this is how
I believe we should be working
and I now have a way to explain
it to others. The challenge for us
was how to work in a restorative
manner with very young
children. As a children’s centre,
we provide services for children
under five years old and work in
partnership with other agencies,
such as health and job centre
plus, to provide services to
support families as a whole, to
ensure children get the best
start in life. (excerpt)
