Here is an update from the Wellbeing in Education programme.
Use of Restorative Practice in schools – training
The Psychology and Therapeutic Service have now run several half day virtual training sessions to introduce school settings to the history and practice of Restorative Practice (previously known as Restorative Justice). These sessions have been aimed at helping education setting staff to understand what constitutes restorative practice, and how and why it works as a whole school approach; feedback so far has been very positive.
If you have missed these sessions but would be interested in attending one in the future, please register your interest via emailing: EducationMHLeadNetwork@suffolk.gov.uk
Subject to levels of interest, we will then arrange some additional training dates.
For those who have already attended one of these half day introductory sessions, we are running a second follow-up ‘in person’ session to help practice and embed restorative conversations and conferencing skills. This will be an interactive session with live teaching and coaching.
The session will run from 9:30 to 12:30 and will be held at Endeavour House in Ipswich on 29th April 2022.
If you would like to book a place on this course please email: EducationMHLeadNetwork@suffolk.gov.uk
Equally, if you have any questions about this training being co-ordinated by the SCC P&TS, please do contact us on the same email above.
