Restorative Justice at IMO

Restorative justice, as a discipline practice in schools, is a transformative approach that focuses on repairing relationships and fostering a sense of accountability and responsibility within the school community. This method of discipline emphasizes understanding the underlying causes of misconduct and seeks to address the harm caused to individuals and the community as a whole. Rather than simply punishing students for their actions, restorative justice aims to educate and support students in making better choices and understanding the impact of their behavior.

In a restorative justice approach, when an incident occurs, a structured dialogue is facilitated, involving the individuals affected by the incident, including the wrongdoer, the victim, and any relevant stakeholders. This open and respectful conversation provides an opportunity for all parties to express their feelings, share their perspectives, and work collaboratively towards finding a resolution. The goal is to promote empathy, understanding, and ultimately repair the relationships that may have been damaged.


By employing restorative justice in schools, educators can help students develop conflict resolution skills, improve communication, and foster a sense of community and trust. This approach encourages personal growth, empathy, and a deeper understanding of the consequences of one's actions, ultimately creating a positive and inclusive school environment where everyone is invested in each other's well-being and success.
