Mediators act as a go between for the school and parents whose relationship has broken down. Mediation helps parents and teachers to have a clear understanding of the circumstances which are impacting on the children.
Mediators can help parents to establish care arrangements and can work directly with the children. Working with children in school is an all round approach to provide support for the children, the school and the parents.
Children are able to talk and are listened to by teachers and Head teachers. Children in schools are able to relate to others and feel supported knowing that there other children with similar experiences.
Children whose parents have separated can be at greater risk of experiencing a number of difficulties compared with children whose parents remain together
- Unable concentrate
- Difficult behaviour
- Disruptive behaviour in classroom
- Low self-esteem
- Relationship difficulties
We will help the school to have a clearer understanding of how they can support the children, set realistic targets of attainment and consider the impact of the circumstances on the children. This will result in the improvement of children’s emotional wellbeing and attainment levels
- Peer relationships improve
- Children feel supported
- Decreasing disruption in class
- Increase children’s self-esteem
- Children feel more confident
- Home and school relationships improve
Parents feel assured that the school is an unbiased place where they can share their concerns honestly in a non-judgmental environment. Mediators can help if parents are often lost in thought which is the result of the circumstances associated with separation or divorce issues.
Mediation helps parents to feel their children are being supported by the school so they themselves can settle and provide a plan for care arrangements which both parents agree on.
