Dear King’s School Community,
Just a reminder of the all-important AGM which takes place in the school hall next Tuesday, 19 September at 6:30 pm. This is purely for the parents.
We have invited a retired school head, Ms Jeanette Welgemoed to speak to our parents about ‘Peer Mediation’.
Teachers must deal with the complexities of resolving inter-personal conflict that happens on the school playground or in the classroom space. One of the many tools we are using is this, ‘Peer mediation’.
Ms Welgemoed has many years of experience and practice and has enough evidence that it is a good tool to use even at Primary school level.
Her strategy is also to inform parents as to how it works, hence the invitation to Jeanette to share with us at the AGM.
Peer mediation is a conflict resolution process in which trained peers or students help their fellow students resolve disputes or conflicts in a constructive and mutually beneficial manner. This approach is widely used in schools and other community settings to promote communication, understanding, and peaceful conflict resolution.
2023/ 2024 – Financials
The Governing Body will also be addressing our parents re budgets for 2024 as well as giving feedback on 2023 Financials.
Yours in education
