RESTORATIVE PRACTISES       

Frankston Heights Primary School is committed to Restorative Practices. We aim daily to build a strong culture, build effective relationships and teach students to resolve conflict, which leads to improve student behaviour. Working restoratively is about asking the right questions when things go wrong.

Put simply, we ask students questions like:

What happened?

How has that made people feel?

And what action needs to be taken to make that better?

It’s about teaching students to take responsibility for their actions and them knowing that nobody is going to do it for them.

Restorative Practices is embedded in a daily practise with circle time.

We incorporate 5 types of circle time.

  1. Check in circles-Eg: How is everyone feeling?
  2. Check out circles-Eg: Reflections of the week
  3. Preparation circles-Eg: Making good choices for an upcoming excursion
  4. Response Circles-Eg: Responding to a major incident
  5. Learning Circles-Eg. What do we know about the topic we are covering? What do we want to know about the topic we are covering? What have we learnt about the topic we are covering?
