How we plan for the return to the classrooms, playgrounds and corridors of schools.
Curated by a restorative collective of researchers, practitioners and school leaders in the light of COVID-19
A restorative lens for education
This model highlights seven key areas which, alongside learning, are where we need to stimulate thinking and make decisions in order to collectively move forward into a healthy ‘new normal’. The areas intersect, interconnect and affect each other, as we all do. RESTORE is a lens through which staff, children and parents can look at the strategy and plans that are needed for everyone’s well- being in a fast changing environment and for a safe and healthy return to school.
More about RESTORE
Of what’s happened and that our experiences during lockdown have all been different, life changing for many and significant for us all. How do we encourage everyone to share their story of the pandemic so far?
Re-establishing a sense of emotional and physical safety for this new normal so that students are able to learn and all are able to thrive. Safeguarding those who may have not been safe whilst they’ve been away from school.
Is now a collective as well as an individual experience, how does the school community process this? And how do we support people who have experienced very particular traumas during lockdown or as a result of facing an even more uncertain future?
