Restorative Justice

‘The fundamental premise of restorative practices is that people are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes when those in authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.’

West Eyreton School is a restorative school. 

The Restorative Justice Programme is taught throughout the school and is the backbone of the school’s pupil behaviour & relationship programmes. Circle time is taught in every classroom and teaches important social skills to all age groups. 

Children receive recognition for positive playground behaviour. Duty Teachers give out tokens to children who are playing and behaving well during playtimes and who are demonstrating the 5 E’s – Empathy, Example, Effort, Excellence, Enterprise, which are part of the school’s culture. 

Children who are spotted place their tokens into a token chute and vote on a fun whole school activity that will happen at the end of each term. 

Peer Mediators

Peer Mediators are rostered on to assist with duty and to help children with any issues that they might have in the playground.
