Conflict Resolution & Peer Mediation

Myself and My Relationships

Conflict resolution and peer mediation programmes are becoming increasingly popular in schools. Research has shown that they can have a positive effect on children’s relationships and behaviour and help to reduce incidents of bullying in school. They also have the potential to enhance children’s learning through creating calmer, safer and more positive school environments.

We have produced a unique, inspiring programme to support schools to develop a whole school approach to resolving conflict peacefully. It also enables the development of a peer mediation service at the school.

The resource contains:

  • A conflict resolution programme with units of work for the Foundation Stage, KS1 and KS2. The programme focuses on children’s interpersonal conflicts and the development of their knowledge, skills and attitudes, to equip them to resolve minor disputes and conflicts peacefully and more independently. 
  • A comprehensive training programme to train children to take an active role within the school’s Peer Mediation Service and assist other children in resolving their conflicts.
  • A review tool and guidance to support schools in planning and establishing a Peer Mediation Service.

The complete package costs £195 including postage and packing. The programme can also be purchased as part of a course. Contact the PSHE Service to place an order email pshe@cambridgeshire.gov.uk  

Discounts and licencing packages together with training opportunities can be negotiated for Local Authorities or similar organisations considering a bulk purchase.
