We would like to invite you to join us at a special event to be held at University of Edinburgh on Friday 3rd October 2014. It is now ten years since Restorative Practices (RP) was first introduced in schools and much has happened in that time. With keynote speakers and a full range of workshops, this day will offer an opportunity for teachers, head teachers, social workers, educational psychologists, other partners and practitioners to come together to look back and think forward; to set RP in the context of ongoing policy developments, to share experience, talk about current successes and challenges and, hopefully, answer the question 'Restorative Practices in School - are we nearly there yet?
