Teach Peace - training Primary School Children in Mediation and positive relationships provides a unique and much required service to the young people of Portsmouth.
This exciting project aims to reduce conflict, bullying and low scale anti-social behaviour in local Primary Schools and is part of our big vision to help build a Restorative Portsmouth!
Teach Peace has been developed by PMS under the guidance and inspiration of Laura Rook and is facilitated by herself and other volunteers from Portsmouth Mediation Service. The programme takes a whole school approach and therefore seeks to teach and equip the children, staff and the parents.
The last academic year saw Teach Peace return to Ark Ayrton School to work with a 2nd group of children following the success of the pilot program last year. Teach Peace also began working in Woodcroft School to train up new teams of mediators to work in the playground.
A team of children and parents in each school attended after school sessions with Teach Peace to learn how to apply restorative practice and become peer mediators. Teach Peace enables children and parents to learn the skills needed to resolve conflict and bring peace to their playgrounds and communities.
The after school sessions were made up of team building activities, learning the 5 restorative questions and doing skills practice.
The children then took the role of peer mediators in the playground, wearing their mediator caps they helped resolve conflicts amongst their peers seeing great success.
Following this success, Teach Peace is now being made available to local schools with a FREE off the shelf training manual and alongside 3 FREE modules of Training for staff to help them develop a restorative culture within their school
We need your help so we can continue to offer and expand this opportunity to every Primary School in Portsmouth!
Thank you for your support and good luck!
