Meet The School Mediators
What is mediation?
“A structured process in which a neutral third party assists voluntary participants in resolving their dispute”
Peer mediation is where pupils help the children in their school to sort out their problems peacefully. They help by allowing the pupils talk to each other while sticking to some rules and hearing how the problem has affected each other.
The mediators do not tell the children with the problem what to do but do help them to talk to each other peacefully.
The aim is to sort out the problem not to blame anyone or find out who is in the wrong.
No adults are involved in the mediation although some adults will help the peer mediators to run the service.
