What are Restorative Practices?
In schools, Restorative Practices are multifaceted in nature; grounded in the traditional practices of Indigenous Cultures around the world that underscore the value of respect, compassion, dignity, and inclusion of all members of the community.
Restorative Practices, when broadly and consistently implemented, will promote and strengthen positive school culture and enhance pro-social relationships within the school community. It includes interventions when harm has occurred, as well as practices that help to prevent harm and conflict by building a sense of belonging, safety, and shared social responsibility throughout the school community.
Restorative Practices are based on principles and processes that emphasize the importance of trusting relationships as central to building community, repairing relationships and restoring the community when harm has occurred.
