The Peer mentoring program at St John’s matches the older pupils (year 5’s and 6’s) with the other students in school, from reception to year 6. Through this special relationship, peer mentors provide advice and support and serve as role models for younger people and peers. Mentoring programs provide positive influences for younger people who may need a little extra attention or who simply feel lonely and may benefit from the support, attention, and kindness of a peer mentor.

Song Writing Charity
On Thursday 24th November Nathan from The Song Writing Charity came into school. He worked with our Peer Mentors on creating an anti-bullying song that will be used throughout the school. The children came up with the lyrics themselves in small groups. After practising a few times, they recorded their song and edited it.
Below is a link to hear the song that they created. We think it is amazing and we are very proud of how creative and thoughtful the children were. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
