Student Peer Mentors

We now have a team of eight trained Peer Mentors in school. They are from years five and six. A Peer Mentor is someone who helps other children to figure out playground problems. For example, this might be if someone is feeling left out or upset. The Mentors aim to listen to both sides and help children to figure out how to solve things with their friends. The aim is to make things better by listening and helping younger children think of solutions together.

The Mentors will be helping Year 3 and below. They have been trained to get help from an adult if the problem is serious or if they are stuck.

They will share the job and work in pairs at break and lunch-time. They will soon be visible in their Peer Mentor hooded tops.
