Building Relationships… Resolving Conflicts
The aim of restorative practice is to develop community and to manage conflict and tensions by repairing harm and building relationships. School discipline is at a crossroad. Most researchers have concluded that years of punitive discipline measures have produced harmful consequences for students. Restorative practice is a strategy that seeks to repair relationships that have been damaged, including those damaged through bullying. It does this
by bringing about a sense of remorse and restorative action on the part of the offender and forgiveness by the victim. A restorative school community is one who welcomes children into a safe, trusting, and nurturing environment.
