Restorative Justice use in school

Research output: Contribution to Specialist PublicationBulletin/Magazine


I have seen many headlines that highlight so-called “restorative justice” or “restorative practices” that induce me to express my frustration – “that is certainly not restorative practice!” A recent example was an article that describes a situation where a 10-year-old boy with special educational needs was “forced by staff to listen to classmates listing the reasons they didn’t like him. He then had to write these on a hand-drawn poster that was then stuck on his classroom wall”. According to the article, parents had been told by the head teacher that this was “restorative justice”.
