KIP Education have developed a number of support programmes 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
