Restorative Thinking offers restorative practice curriculum programmes for primary and secondary schools.
Restorative Thinking curriculum programmes are designed to be delivered as part of whole school restorative practice. Teachers and school staff delivering Restorative Thinking curriculum programmes should complete, as a minimum, a one day training course covering restorative principles and skills practice with a training provider holding the RJC’s Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM).
- Restorative Thinking: A Restorative Practice Curriculum Programme Written by Teachers, for Teachers (KS1 & KS2) empowers pupils with key life skills in restorative practice. Delivered over half a term as part of the PSHE curriculum, the toolkit gives pupils the skills, knowledge and understanding to draw on restorative practice to manage daily challenges and conflicts, strengthen relationships, take responsibility by developing self-talk, empathy and emotional literacy.
- Restorative Thinking: A Restorative Practice Curriculum Programme Written by Teachers, for Teachers (KS3 & KS4) equips pupils with the skills and language to find solutions to everyday conflicts and to reflect more on their own behaviour. It is solution-focused and deepens and develops pupil’s understanding of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of life. Download a leaflet introducing the toolkit here.

In October 2013 we worked with Leicester Children and Young People’s Service, training SLT and teachers from several primary schools in restorative practice (RP) and also training staff in effective delivery of the Restorative Thinking primary curriculum programme. Leicester Children and Young People’s Service produced a video exploring how RP was implemented in Leicestershire Primary Schools. Here’s an an extract from the film showing teaching staff delivering the Restorative Thinking curriculum programme with pupils.
