The RJC is pleased to announce that Joseph Norton Academy has been awarded the Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM).

Jon Collins, the RJC’s chief executive, said:

“I would like to offer my congratulations to the whole team at Joseph Norton Academy on this fantastic achievement. By successfully completing the RSQM, it has demonstrated its commitment to providing the highest standards in restorative practice.”

The RSQM is a badge of quality that guarantees that a service provides safe, high quality restorative practice which meets the six Restorative Service Standards. Joseph Norton Academy joins other RSQM awardees – in sectors ranging from criminal justice through education to care – delivering high quality restorative processes.

Darryl Jones, Joseph Norton Academy’s Pastoral welfare leader, said:

“As a SEMH school, we felt it was vitally important for our staff to learn and embed restorative practice skills to help our students build and repair bridges after experiencing conflict or crisis. Completing the RSQM allowed us to do this. It was a really worthwhile and enjoyable learning experience and an achievement that everyone at Joseph Norton Academy can feel really proud of.”
