Peer Mediators

The aim of Peer Mediation at Holy Trinity is to get a group of children and friendship circles to resolve conflict and disputes within the school playground using mediation.

Some of our Year 5 and 6 pupils are trained to ensure that all play and lunch times are a happy and safe environment for all including the peer mediators themselves. Our peer mediators are extremely valued and hold an important role within the school as they are always committed to ensure all the children experience an enjoyable and fun time whilst in school.

Our mediators attend regular training sessions before they are qualified to be a peer mediator. The peer mediators can be identified on the playground by wearing bright green hi-vis jackets. The mediation process involves two peer mediators sitting in a quiet/open area with the children involved and finding a resolution to their issue. If the mediators handling the situation feel they are not able to deal with the issue they always approach a member of staff (physical issues). However, our mediators often find that they are able to resolve the situations themselves. 

Issues occurred during lunch/playtime are recorded in a peer mediator folder which is regularly checked by members of staff.

Our peer mediators are aware that support is always on hand. They all attend regular meetings to keep up-to-date with strategies which are successful and those which may require further support.
