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 kind, caring and understanding.
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.
In the past at Homefields we have had just year six children that were trained to be a peer mediator. This year (2022) we will have a peer mediator from each Key Stage 2 year group, to ensure that if the classes have to go into "bubbles" again due to Government Covid restrictions, the children will still be able to continue their hard work.
