Restorative Practice


Restorative practice is embedded into the fabric of our school.  We use it with staff and students as part of our  daily work.

Our practice has been recognised by Surrey County Council Restorative Practice Lead Professionals, Chris Stevens and Carmel Ring.


Staff are often asked to present to a range of audiences, teachers and school staff, LA officers, and other groups.

The videos below give you a flavour of how our restorative approach keep the learner at the heart of our work and ensure we work with young people to help them to learn from mistakes, to self regulate and develop safe relationships with others.
