The school have been working in partnership with WRAP Wales Restorative Approaches Partnership, to develop RAIS Restorative Approaches in Schools at Ynysboeth Community Primary. A restorative approach is an ethos and value base for working with people, rather than to or for them. It encourages a consistent mind-set and value base which is embedded successfully and sustainably enabling cultural change to take place.
Parents received an over view of RAIS from Vince, The aim is building, maintaining and repairing relationships. To be restorative means believing that decisions are best made and conflicts best resolved by those most directly affected by them.
Restorative practices embrace early intervention, prevention and response and include a focus on accountability and responsibility, openness, mutual respect and inclusion.
Evidence shows that restorative approaches can be successfully applied to address a wide range of strategic priorities identified by the Welsh Government in key areas including criminal justice, education, communities, children’s services and social care.
Thank you to all the parents who came to the open afternoon
