Restorative Justice

​Chevallum uses the Principles of Restorative Justice within our behaviour management framework, and staff have received professional development and training in conferencing and implementation of this approach.   Restorative Justice encourages reflection on behaviour, personal acknowledgement of behaviour and choices made and the building of positive relationships as the bedrock of behaviour management and indeed quality teaching in schools.




Restorative Justice teaches all members of a school community:-

“The gift in this approach is a new language to define how we think about & manage our own & student behaviour. Behaviour management may thus be more appropriately called relationship management. Compliance becomes an outcome of a sense of understanding and community, not an end in itself.
The philosophy of restoration & transformation offers hope for those of us who want our kids to grow up in a world where they understand that whatever they do, good or bad, will have an impact on someone else. If that impact is harmful, the way forward is to make things right.”​
