Restorative Approach

What is a Restorative Approach? 

A Restorative Approach is one which focuses on the harm caused in an incident, and helps those involved to listen to each other’s point of view and take responsibility to put things right. Priestnall School is part of an authority-wide project to embed Restorative Approaches across the borough. Teaching staff have received Restorative Approaches training and understand the importance of maintaining good relationships.

RA underpins our Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural curriculum and actively promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.

As a Restorative School, Priestnall concentrates on establishing respectful relationships across the whole school community, and takes steps to repair and rebuild relationships if things go wrong, so that everyone can move forward.

Teaching staff at Priestnall have received Restorative Approaches training and understand the importance of maintaining good relationships,especially when one person or group has caused harm to others.

How do Students know about Restorative Approaches? 

Many students will be familiar with RA as a significant number of Primary Schools in Stockport have adopted a Restorative Approach.  Priestnall School is part of an authority-wide project to embed Restorative Approaches across the borough. We have trained a number of Student Restorative Approaches Ambassadors. They can be contacted to help students make and maintain friendships and do their best in school.

Students also attend assemblies informing them of Restorative Approaches and how it works and there is an RA display board providing more information for students and details of who they can approach for help.

How can my child contact the RA Team?

If there is an incident or concern in school and your child would like help and support to put things right and make sure that the behaviour does not happen again, they can:·
Talk to their Learning Coordinator ·

Approach a Student Restorative Ambassador directly·

Ask for help or support via the RA section on the school website.
We are currently training staff so that all College areas have a designated member of teaching staff who is a Restorative Champion,trained to facilitate Restorative meetings
