Peer Mediation Training for East Sussex Schools

Mediation Plus offers Peer Mediation training to both primary school and secondary school children in our area. Peer Mediation is a process in which two pupils who have been trained in mediation skills (peer mediators) encourage students who are in conflict to find ways of solving the problem they face or to explore new ways of looking at the situation.

The peer mediators guide the students through a structured mediation process with the aim of helping those involved to find their own solutions to the conflict. The school appoints a member of staff to act as the Peer Mediation Co-ordinator (that person has usually sat in on the training) to oversee the running of the service and the peer mediators.
