Lakeside Primary Academy uses Restorative Practice approaches to improve behaviour in order support your child’s education. Whilst providing children with an education in the core subjects it is important that we educate them both socially and emotionally. We will look to give the children valuable life skills, and tools to be able to overcome the challenges that they will face as they learn and grow over the years. As a school that uses Restorative Practice approaches, we will proactively support the children in managing any conflicts that arise, this could be conflict in their learning but it also may be conflict with their peers. We aim to provide children with clear boundaries and consequences to behaviours.
Our Virtues of Respect, Self-Belief and Resilience are the basis for how we conduct ourselves and these are supported by using restorative language. All staff will communicate in a restorative way and will ask your child to do the same. Restorative language is calm respectful and fair. It allows everyone to be listened to.
