These peer support training days include: •

• •

Buddy programme training – 1 days whole school training to include basics of Circle Time, highlights of Protective Behaviours, and MDSA training to promote whole school links and promote ‘Positive Playtimes’. Peer Mediation Programme Training – 1 days training to include basics of Circle Time, Active Listening and Problem Solving Skills using VITAL.
