Restorative Approaches in Stockport


Meet our  BSS Restorative Lead Practitioner ...

 Hello, my name is Andrew Earl and I am the  RA Lead Practitioner across Education and Stockport family.. I have worked in primary education for the last 15 years, the last 5 of which I worked as the deputy and subsequently headteacher of a large, complex primary school in Salford.

If you are not as familiar with the concept, Restorative Approaches is an ethos - or way of being - which places relationships at the core of everything an organisation does. It promotes active thinking about how we build our relationships, how we work to keep them healthy and how we can repair them when there has been conflict. Restorative Practice is relevant to us all. It supports us to connect with each other as fellow human beings, guiding us with our interactions. It can help us to consider how our actions and responses affect our relationships, whether these are relationships at work or at home. This way of being underpins the Stockport Family Model and is practised within many of our schools within Stockport. 

 I work across education and the  Stockport Family and am delighted to support you wherever you are on your restorative approaches journey. I can be contacted at
