Peer Mediators

Peer Mediators are trained during the summer term while they are in Year 5. Once in Year 6
children work in pairs to help solve playground disputes.  They wear bright blue t-shirts when on the playground at break and lunch and take it in turns over the course of a week, so there are always two mediators “on duty” every break and lunchtime on the Junior playground.

If children have fallen out then they can either seek mediation themselves or the Year 6 mediators might be approached by any adult on duty at break or lunchtime. The mediators help each “side” to explain their issue and work through problems to  a resolution.
