Workshops to learn more about Warwickshire's Restorative Practice Approach

Following the recent session at the Headteachers Conference many of you will be aware that Warwickshire Safeguarding has endorsed the new Restorative Practice Approach being rolled out across the county. Restorative Practice is about creating and maintaining respectful and trusting relationships with children and their families, working on the premise of 'High Support and High Challenge'.

A series of multi-agency Restorative Child Protection System workshops have been organised across the county to help raise awareness of the new model and to share more information about how we will work collaboratively to deliver a restorative system across Warwickshire. 

Workshops are open to all practitioners who attend or lead child protection within organisations across Warwickshire.

The objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Provide an introduction to restorative practice
  • Introduce the new Pathway to Change model in Warwickshire
  • Explain the new ways of working in strategy meetings, child protection conference and core group meetings.
  • Explain how we will work differently to include families within the child protection system, particularly how we will share information and work with families and professionals to develop child and family plans

You are encouraged to book yourself onto one of these workshops to learn firsthand about the changes and how this will impact on your work with children and families.

The first two sessions will take place in November and December, with a further seven sessions organised for January 2020. 

To find out more about this new approach and to book your place on a workshop please visit the Safeguarding Warwickshire webpage.
