Peer Supporters


As part of our anti bullying work in school we have children from years 5 and 6 who are known as Peer Supporters. They have an important role in school.Our peer supporters look after all the children on the playground and are always willing to help others and listen if they have any problems.

Our Peer Supporters wear lovely purple sashes so they will definitely stand out on the playground.

Peer Supporters are available on the school playground for children to talk to if  they are feeling upset because of events either on the playground or within school caused by other children. The Peer Supporters wear a blue cap when they are on duty. The Peer Supporters choose  children to receive a friendship award in assembly on Friday.


Child friendly definition of bullying.

The Peer Supporters worked with the School Council to develop a child friendly definition of bullying.

They agreed on the following definition

'Bullying is when a person upsets somebody's life all the time. Such as physical harm, phones, social media and verbal bullying'
