At Homelands, we have a group of dedicated children from year 6 who take on duties to help and assist with any problems at playtime or lunchtime. They are trained to help children to resolve problems in a sensitive way and with a caring approach.
What is a Peer Mediator?
A Peer Mediator is trained to help you sort out problems at school.
We will listen to you and not take sides.
We will not tell you off.
Our aim is to help you identify and express your feelings and needs.
We will not decide who is right or wrong or blame anyone.
We will offer suggestions to help you sort out your problem.
We will create solutions and agree a course of action together.
Playground friends are children from year 5 who help to encourage and support their younger peers at Homelands. They take part in helping to set up the games and support the children in play. All friends are put on a rota and do a duty once a week.
