Restorative Practice

for Friends School Educators and School Leaders

Restorative Practices (RP) are a way of being that is rooted in building healthy connections and repairing harm within a community.

The use of Restorative Practices aligns beautifully with the Quaker tenets on which our schools are founded:

  • Equity
  • Respect
  • Truth
  • Reflection
  • Peaceful resolution of conflict
  • Accepting each individual's unique gifts
  • Restoration of trust when harm is caused.

Led by experienced Quaker Educators and trained IIRP facilitators, our work together will focus on:

  • a fundamental understanding of Restorative Practices in schools 
  • the mindset of a relationship-based approach to discipline and conflict resolution
  • the process and practice of leading proactive community-building Circles
  • how to lead Restorative Conversations and Healing Circles
  • resources, reflection, and planning for effective classroom and school-wide implementation
  • plenty of time to practice, practice, practice
