Peer Mentors 2015-2016

Each Key Stage 2 class has 2 to 3 peer mentors representing them. Peer mentors work closely with Mrs Street. Their responsibilities include:

* Being role models for other children at all times
* Immediately reporting to an adult any incidents of bullying during break times
* Listening to other children, offering support and liaising with an adult
* Overseeing the Friendship Stop ensuring children always have someone to play with
* Communicating with all children on anti-bullying work within school.
* Taking part in assemblies, training and presentations
* Ensuring everyone is aware of STOP message

Below is a table which shows which KS2 class is linked with which KS1 class. The KS2 behaviour mentors will keep their ‘buddy class’ updated with issues and initiatives. This also provides the younger children with a familiar face if they want to talk.
