Staff at Ethos College are trained in restorative practices and these are used to restore and rebuild relationships. The practice enables pupils and/or staff to come together to repair and appreciate the impact of their behaviours on others. This approach is successful in improving behaviours and building trusting relationships that are fundamental in improving the emotional wellbeing and learning outcomes of all pupils. Being able to reflect on behaviours and consider alternatives is a key skill that restorative practice supports pupils to develop. It is this reflection and willingness to change behaviours, in certain circumstances, that is fundamental in our behaviour management strategy.
