Buddies play an important role in our playtimes and lunchtimes at Sea View and we value their contribution to our school life. They receive training to help them fulfil their role. We have teams of Buddies who alternate each week in Year groups 3 and 6.
Buddy Job Description
Year 5 Peer Mediators
Our group of Peer Mediators have now completed their training and can be found on a lunchtime helping children to resolve their problems.
The mediation process involves two peer mediators sitting in a quiet area with the children involved and finding a resolution. If the mediators feel they are not equipped to deal with the conflict then it is referred to a member of staff. However, our mediators often find that they are able to resolve the situations themselves.
Please note that physical altercations are always dealt with by a member of staff.
The children’s confidence has improved and we think they all do a fantastic job!
