Shirehampton Primary School began its Restorative Justice (RJ) journey in 2012. They wanted to incorporate an approach that moved away from a punitive system to one that sought to educate yet involve their pupils. The approach would focus on pupils’ knowledge of managing their feelings/behaviour and would be skills they would take with them into their future lives. RJ met their requirements and has since been a resounding success. In June 2013, the Bristol Post covered our work here.
