Introducing Restorative Approaches to the Students
Transcript of Introducing Restorative Approaches to the Students
Used in Indigenous communities like the Native American Indians, the Mauri tribes in New Zealand and the Aborigine tribes in Australia to 'repair' any wrong doing in their communities and find a way forward.
The Background of
Restorative Approaches recognise that incidents harm everyone; this includes the wrong doer, the harmed and the wider community. A restorative approach intends to make ‘things’ right, with the wrong doer accepting responsibility for their actions, repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward for all parties concerned.
So, what are Restorative Approaches?
A more structured way of repairing harm that has been done.
Develops a common language across the College to manage conflict and enable positive communication.
An opportunity to build relationships.
Allows us to recognise how our behaviours affect others.
Creates a way to see our behaviours clearly.
Creates a responsibility to learn from conflict.
Creates a responsibility to learn from past behaviours and to moderate our actions now and for the future.
Educates participants in producing positive outcomes from challenging situations.
What does it mean for you?
All staff have an RA card. They will use it to ask you questions if a harm needs to be repaired.
The questions are asked to find out:
1. The facts (no emotions)
2. The Affects (emotions)
3. The Outcomes (finding a way forward)
How will Restorative Approaches work in College?
Detentions will run in a restorative circle.
On arrival, you will complete a reflection sheet asking you questions about the reason why you are in detention. This will help you to begin to understand and take responsibility for your actions.
A restorative circle will be formed and a teacher will lead it following the basic rules of circles:
respect the talking piece
speak from the heart
speak with respect
listen with respect
remain in the circle
What are Circles?
Circles link participants with one another encouraging a sense of shared effort and common ground.
Circles promote shared leadership and equality.
Encourage communication, cohesion, listening, conversation, debate, honesty and understanding
