Rachel Tomlinson, Head Teacher, Barrowford Primary School
Independent Thinking on Restorative Practice is an enjoyable, thought-provoking and, in some parts, laugh-out-loud easy read - and teachers and leaders at every stage of their careers need to read it. It explains restorative and relational practices with clarity, authenticity and warmth.
Mark's vast experience and deep understanding of relationships and how they impact on children and adults has enabled him to make something that is easily misunderstood or misapplied refreshingly simplistic. The application of the principles Mark outlines will create a hugely positive impact on the lives of children in every classroom and school.
Leading and teaching with love isn't a big thing; it's lots of little things. And Mark captures this perfectly.
