Peer Mentor Programme

At Driffield School & Sixth Form we pride ourselves on making student well-being a priority, therefore have launched a brand new peer mentor programme.

Miss Farrell, Anti-Bullying Coordinator, said “We have opened a newly refurbished chill area offering students who may feel vulnerable a space to gain support and make new positive friendships with peers. We are offering training to students provided by the Diana Award to give them the tools to help other students whilst they may be struggling with school transitions or unkind behaviours".

Deputy Headteacher Mrs Dalton, along with Miss Farrell, have been the driving force of the programme and it has proven to be a big hit. To date, over 100 students have signed up to be peer mentors who share the vision to help make change. We wish them well with this new programme.
