Peer Mentors

Our Peer mentoring program, at Hemlington Hall Academy, is about provide guidance for the children from the children. Through this special relationship, peer mentors provide advice and support and serve as role models for younger and older people who need help.

These children do a wonderful job supporting everybody at Hemlington Hall Academy.


A few words from our Peer Mentor Leader…

My name is Seth and I am the pupil Peer Mentor leader. I’m writing about what it is like to be a Peer Mentor. Being a peer mentor has a lot of responsibility, like making sure everyone has a good time and has a friend to spend that time with, which is why we are trained to know how to solve friendship issues. All the Peer Mentors take turns going down into key stage one at lunch times. Some of the problems we face are: falling outs, arguments and being left out. If we face a problem like violence then we will report the problem to a teacher or another member of staff, this is called a hot potato. We take care of problems by listening to each side of the story, ask them what they would like to happen and once it has been sorted we might play a fun game. Once they go out to play we record the incident on a special form. If someone is lonely they can come inside and play board games or we can play outside with them to keep them company.
