KIP Education have developed a programme to support children’s resilience in primary and secondary schools.
Peer mentoring has been evidenced as having a positive impact on the emotional health and well-being of children and young people.
Peer mentoring can support children and young people by:
Enhancing social competence
Building security within the setting and the wider community by realising their worth as social beings
Improving attendance and educational attainment whilst developing friendship skills in a positive environment.
WHAT IS MENTORING, AND WHAT IMPACT DOES IT HAVE FOR PARTICIPANTS?
Peer mentoring is traditionally a one-to-one non-judgemental relationship in which an individual (mentor) voluntarily gives time to support and encourage another (mentee).
Peer mentors provide advice and guidance whilst acting as a positive role model for younger people who require their support.
What impact can mentoring have?
Improve self-esteem, confidence, communication skills, and problem solving skills
Improve sense of belonging in school
Improve pupil attendance in school
Reduce behaviour incidents
Improve grades/academic achievement
“One-to-one mentoring will give students a safe environment to raise concerns & ask questions which they might not feel confident talking about in front of an adult or in a classroom setting.”
