St. Philip’s Catholic Primary School is proud to be a Restorative School, which means we teach our children to build and maintain relationships. When things go wrong, as they sometimes do, we have forgiveness as the heart of all that we do.
Restorative practice is a term used to describe a way of being, an underpinning ethos, which enables us to build and maintain healthy , resolve difficulties and repair harm when breakdown.
Restorative approaches are value-based and needs-led.
They can be seen as part of a broader ethos or culture that identifies strong, mutually respectful and a cohesive community and the foundations on which good teaching and learning can flourish. In such a community, young people are given a lot of responsibility for decision-making on issues that affect their lives, their learning and their experiences of school.
