Developed for schools exploring the use of restorative approaches to conflict resolution, this manual explains how to set up and run a restorative peer mediation programme, to provide students with the skills needed to nurture a climate of care and co-operation.

Peer mediation can help peers solve conflicts in the classroom and schoolyard, providing both peer mediators and the children they help with opportunities for responsibility, growth and learning, as well as freeing up time for teachers to focus on other priorities. The guide includes all the information you need on how restorative peer mediation works, and includes an easy to implement training programme with sample scripts, handouts and letter templates to train up peer mediators in your school.

With adapted materials for delivering training to children aged 10-16, this handbook is accompanied by downloadable and adaptable online materials to tailor training to specific settings.


This book has that most important of things: resources that will both support the busy staff member, and really engage students. An excellent addition to any school's toolkit on the journey to becoming a restorative community.
Chris Straker, Restorative Justice Council
The authors demonstrate on every page how much young people can learn from restorative peer mediation - including children who may themselves have been involved in difficult conflicts and who can bring special knowledge and skills to help others.
