Several of the initiatives at Carr Manor Community School are focused on building and working on these strong relationships.
At our last inspection, Ofsted said “the relationships between staff and pupils are extremely positive.”
One way in which we achieve that success is through restorative practice. We have been embedding and developing relational practices for over fourteen years, and restorative practices for over eight years. We have a high number of pupils in school who are trained as ‘restorative practice’ representatives. This means they have received specific training on how to facilitate restorative conversations. These representatives put these skills into practice with their peers by supporting self-regulation, facilitating repair, encouraging problem solving, creating connections and building relationships.
