Restorative Practice

The aim of Restorative Practices at Bishop Martin is to develop a partnership between home, school, parish and the wider community, through a shared understanding of skills required to build and repair relationships. This is our priority as a restorative school, as we see ourselves at the heart of and serving our community.

Questions to ask when approaching situations in a restorative way. 

  • What happened?
  • What were you thinking about at the time?
  • What have your thoughts been since?
  • How do you feel about what has happened?
  • Who has been affected by what’s happened?
  • In what ways have they been affected?
  • What needs to happen to make things right?

Promoting a Restorative Approach to Learning

Our school community is committed to using Restorative Practice to:

  • Promote respect, responsibility and emotional well-being.
  • Develop and nurture safe, healthy and positive relationships between children, parents and staff.
  • Encourage learning behaviours that demonstrate a growth mind-set and a ‘can do’ attitude.
