Peer Mediators Needed!
Calling all Homefields students’ who feel that they can make our school a kinder and safer place for children. We need you to assist others with problems and issues they may face during their school day. At Homefields, we know that some children find it easier to relate to other children and therefore may be able to talk about problems that they may not necessarily share with an adult.
What is a Peer Mediator?
A peer mediator is someone who can see both sides of an argument and help others to come to a solution themselves. They must be able to recall incidents and pass on information to staff. Peer mediators will be trained to communicate effectively with both children and staff.
Some quotes from past Peer Mediators
"I have had a hard time before and felt I had no-one to talk to - when I did everything felt so much better, I want to help others who may feel like I did!"
"I would like to be someone that others could turn to.
"I like seeing other people laugh and smile."
"I am kind and caring and have a calming presence."
"I am a good listener."
"I don't quit on things and I work hard - if I get this opportunity, I won't let you down!"
Application forms are available to children in KS2 who would like to apply for the post. They are also available online to download.
Mrs Rollerson and Mr Jones will read all the applications and one child per class will be selected for the Peer Mediator role.
We look forward to reading all the applications.
