St. George’s Church of England Foundation School: developing Peer Mentoring
The school’s story
After self-assessing the school’s approach to wellbeing and resilience using the Resilience Toolkit, developing Peer Mentoring was one of the key areas identified.
Key Stage 3 pupils were identified as having a need for peer support. Twelve pupils participated in Peer Mentoring training and a staff member was trained to be able to train others in the future.
Peer Mentors effectively support other students in school. The school has explored a Senior Peer Mentoring programme where Mentors are trained to support other Mentors in school.
The Mentors were promoted during school assemblies; following these assemblies pupils requested support through the Mentoring programme, and also requested training to become a Mentor themselves.
Mentees have reported how having a Mentor has really helped them.
