Restorative Justice Programme

At Everton Free School we recognise the importance of peace in our school community.

In our school and classroom environments everybody feels safe: teaching and learning is enhanced and academic attainment and performance rises.

However, we recognise that on occasion there may be conflict and, as and when it does arise, we use a Restorative Conference to resolve the matter and de-escalate the situation. Our students learn to alternatively resolve and de-escalate conflict in a peaceful manner rather than escalation and the resulting consequences.

Our own bespoke and personalised approach to Restorative Justice, created following discussion with our stake-holders, is as follows:

A member of staff identifies the situation to a member of the Behaviour For Learning team.

As inclusive practitioners a member of the BFL team mediates the conference between the students and the situation is resolved quickly and professionally in a bid to minimise disruption and time out of the classroom.

We track, monitor and assess the impact of the conference through our SIMS system.
