RESTORATIVE MEDIATION: West Kent Mediation, based in Sevenoaks, can help resolve conflicts in local schools. Part of the work they carry out is training children in Peer Mediation which helps them self-resolve minor playground disputes. The training involves working with Year five or six who learn listening skills and body language. The children look at feelings and how they affect them, play team games and discuss ‘red flag’ areas. Focus is on listening to other’s views, being impartial and finding a ‘win-win’ solution to the conflict. Important life skills are developed in a fun and relaxed setting which have a very positive impact on the day to day running of a primary school.
