Our newly trained Peer Mediators are now in action! The 13-strong group of year 6 children have undertaken a rigorous and thorough training programme under the guidance of Mediator Leader Mrs Harper and have now started to give out advice and guidance to help iron out disputes between children in the Key Stage 1 and 2 playgrounds.
They work on a rota basis and can be easily found in the Mediator Room every lunchtime. The group were selected after they made an application for the important role and believe that the training they received from Mrs Harper has set them in good stead for supporting their peers to sort out problems by reaching a reasonable and friendly solution.
Cliftonville first launched the Mediator Programme a number of years ago but has grown in importance and status ever since with the role of Peer Mediator being highly valued amongst children and staff.
We are hugely proud of the very valuable work our Peer Mediators undertake within our school community. They work with maturity and kindness – always upholding our very important Cliftonville values.
