Restorative practice: How young can we go?
Streethouse Junior and Infants is a small community school situated within an exmining, rural village in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. The children who attend are from the surrounding area that is believed to have a high depravation level and a history of deep rooted problems with drug and alcohol abuse. The school caters for children from 3 years old up to 11 years old when they transfer to either of two local high schools. After practicing SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) for six years the staff and governors decided to adopt a whole school approach to restorative practice to enhance their existing school practices for behaviour management.
