Mayfield is a restorative school. This means that we try to take a restorative approach to resolving conflict both inside and outside of the classroom.
Restorative approaches enable those who have been harmed to convey the impact of the harm to those responsible, and for those responsible to acknowledge this impact and take steps to put it right.
Being restorative helps to support both pupils and staff and enables us to deal with incidents in a way which focuses on rebuilding relationships rather than punitive sanctions.
Restorative meetings are voluntary and may take place between pupils and peers or pupils and staff. Any person taking part in the meeting is welcome to bring a trusted person with them from within the school community e.g. a friend, tutor or Head of House.
