Moorfield Primary School aims to be a safe & happy place where children, staff, parents & governors all work together to give every child the best possible education for life – “we will be the best school we can possibly be”.
We are one of Stockport’s restorative approaches schools.
Restorative Approaches is a solution based coaching approach that evolved from restorative justice. The fundamental premise of restorative practices is that people are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them. For example, in schools, the use of restorative practices has been shown to improve the overall climate for learning and reliably reduce mis-behaviour, bullying, violence and risky behaviour. It supports the creation of a happy working environment that then underpins effective learning and emotional wellbeing.
