"When introducing a new Pastoral programme and researching different approaches to this, the whole concept of restorative justice was a recurring theme in the schools where best practice was evident. A group of staff were trained by Consensus NI about restorative justice and learning how to have those restorative conversations. We introduced this in our school because we wanted a different way of working with some of our students to help them to cope with difficult situations in their lives. It has been so successful in the first few months that we want to embed this across the school community. The response from the students has been fantastic and has brought about a complete change in attitudes from staff and pupils alike. There has been an increased benefit of this in pupil/teacher/parent relationships, which can enhance the education of our young people'.
Head of Pastoral Care, Belfast, November 2016.
