Additional Book Details

'This positive book sets out to help teachers and pupils to work together to improve the quality of playtime…The time taken to develop these worthwhile skills is likely to be well spent and benefit the school and playtime in the long run' - Youth in Mind



Includes CD-Rom



This book aims to assist teachers to train pupils aged 6 - 11 in peer befriending. The contents include comprehensive facilitator notes on running training programme for young people including Circle Time activities, pro-social games and necessary photocopiable worksheets.



The contents are based on the author's own experiences of running such a programme to assist pro-social behaviour at breaks and lunchtimes. Also included in the book are some awareness raising sessions for support staff and lunchtime supervisors.



This programme is not intended to be mediation training, rather it is a 'friends' scheme. It has been successfully trialled in primary schools in Bromley.
