Restorative Whole-School Approach is a comprehensive strategy in working with school bullying. The approach does not focus on short-term punishment, but on building a long-term positive school environment to prevent bullying. With illustration of some real case examples, this presentation highlights the framework of Restorative Whole-school Approach developed in Hong Kong, and discusses how restorative practices could help to build up a peaceful learning environment for children, and tackling risk factors conducive to school bullying.
