Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice (RJ) is a concept which can be used within any environment where conflict may have arisen due to the actions of one or more people, for example bullying.  The process of repairing the harm involves several steps an RJ conference may not always be appropriate and it is important that both victim and offender have adequate support before, during and after the event.  The aim is to give the victim an open and supportive forum to voice their feelings, for both parties to speak in a controlled environment and ultimately to be able to move forward. 

Anna is qualified as an advanced RJ practitioner in 2009  and has used the process in a school setting on numerous occasions with children aged ten to nineteen. Her role is to prepare all parties and chair the conference ensuring it remains appropriate at all times.  The RJ process has several steps to ensure a successful and properly supported conference:

Pre-conference

  • Meeting with the safeguarding/school lead/referring person.

  • Separate Meeting with both parties and/or their  supporting adults.

Day of conference

  • Separate Meeting with both parties and/or their  supporting adults.

  • Conference

  • Separate Meeting with both parties and/or their  supporting adults.

Post conference

  • Telephone contact with all parties and follow up meeting if required.
