Free Restorative Justice Webinar
This event will be run jointly by Lynne Russell and Kelly Walker of Restorative Justice 4 Schools and Youth Resilience UK.
Restorative Justice 4 Schools is one of the leading training providers of Restorative Approaches/Justice training to schools within Britain and Europe. Our personal experience of implementing a restorative approach comes from working directly within schools, this allows us to contextualise the implementation and delivery of restorative outcomes to pupils and staff and talk about any barriers you are likely to meet and how to overcome them.
Youth Resilience UK is a community interest company founded by Lynne Russell and Kelly Walker to deliver direct support, services and a wide range of training to young people in any area of our community to develop emotional, behavioural and physiological resilience. We passionately believe that restorative justice and its wider approaches create a framework to change young people lives for the better by giving them the skills to make positive changes and choices.
Each month we host a webinar for staff working with young people, parents and young volunteers to attend and join in with the guest speakers on discussing the workings of education and behaviour management.
About this Event
This webinar will be an informal chat about a complex school conference both Kelly Walker and Lynne Russell were involved in. The incident was high level racist attack on a number of pupils both in school and on social media. The pupils most affected by the incident and the wrong doer went through multiple preparations sessions before coming together in a formal restorative justice conference, which was then followed by a whole class circle to reintegrate the pupil back into their class. The class prior to the restorative work had calmly stated that they would not engage with the wrong doer on any level within their form and this left the school in a very difficult position.
The behaviour of the wrong doer was a pattern, the school had ignored the problem or at times made it worse, the parents were ignoring the problem and the rest of the class were disillusioned and fed up.
Find out how we attempted to meeting the needs of those affected by the behaviour, held the wrong doer to account, reintegrated them into the class and changed their behaviour in a meaningful and permanent way.
