Professional Learning, Restorative Approaches

Positive relationships in education are key to effective learning, teaching and health and wellbeing (M. Thorsborne). Restorative approaches are fundamentally grounded in repairing and resorting relationships when they have been harmed. It moves away from the language and culture of restorative justice towards an ethos of relational problem solving for the repair of harm.  It is a philosophy, not a model, and ought to guide the way we act in our dealings with others (B. Hopkins).

We are proud to introduce our film ‘Nurturing North Ayrshire’. This film showcases our journey so far implementing Nurture and Restorative approaches across early years, primary and secondary.
