Situation

Pupils are often reluctant to report problems they are facing with their peers to teachers or other adults. They are often seen as authority figures detatched from the issue who are only likely to impose sanctions rather than address the issues.

Solution

Training Peer Mediators gives them a new opportunity to solve issues themselves or prevent problems from occuring in the first place. Peer Mediators are on the same level as other pupils but are still able to act independently and confidentially to find a resolution between the parties.
