Responding to inappropriate behaviour with restorative approaches

Where appropriate, the SCPO can offer restorative approaches to avoid young people entering the criminal justice system by holding them accountable for their actions. With restorative approaches the whole school community and parents can be involved. Restorative approach in the school setting views misbehaviour not just as school rule breaking but also as an offence against people and relationships in the school. School officers have been trained and are available to facilitate or support the restorative approach in school settings, when requested.
