Vigo Lane, Washington, Tyne And Wear, NE38 9EZ
Our school has a Peer Mentor Team.
We are the peer mentors. We work out on the playground each day on the peer mentor station, helping to support pupils of our school with any issues they have. We meet regularly with Mrs K O'Connor, Miss Patterson and Mrs Reid to discuss how the mentoring support is going and address any issues.
Well done to the Rickleton Peer Mentors for being highly commended for the Anti-Bullying work they do. They received the award at the Council Chambers from the Mayor.
The Peer Mentors were invited to the Council Chambers to collect an award. We won the award for the most innovative Anti-Bullying Team throughout Sunderland. The children who attended created a presentation to show what we do in school.
The Peer Mentors had to apply for their position and gain references from their parent/carers. They were then trained by a member of the Peer Mentoring and Befriending Society. The training involved role-play to work out how they would deal with different scenarios.
