Schools, College and Universities Mediation Service

Mediation In Schools

As experts, we understand that communication can sometimes beak down between two parties involved in a dispute. Sometimes, communication can hit an impasse when it comes to disputes between higher management, teachers and other members of the school’s staff. At that point, it becomes difficult to resolve a conflict without professional mediation in schools.

We strongly believe that it is necessary for everyone involved in a child’s education to have a positive experience since they all play a crucial role in their development. When relationships between different parties breakdown, children suffer, and that’s why our mediation in schools is meant to quickly resolve issues so that everyone can get back to the job of educating kids.

Why Should You Seek School Mediation?

Conflict in any school environment can be immensely damaging to all related parties and can have a disruptive effect on the community. Anyone can refer to our school mediation service, i.e. families, students or the school itself. We hear all points of view and consider all issues. In schools, our conflict resolution methods involve either providing a solution or a decision that’s imposed on both parties involved by a person in an authority position. That said our goal is to help all those involved formulate their solutions and also take full responsibility for any of their actions.

Who Should use a School Mediation Service

Many different types of conflicts can arise in a myriad of ways. The situations that can arise are often: Student to student, teacher to teacher, parent to the school, teacher to administrator and teacher to teacher.

During any conflict, emotions tend to run high, and the challenge is being able to respond with a workable process that manages the conflict and facilitates the participation of all parties. At the end of the day, it should lead to everyone learning and growing from the experience.

Request for our mediation in schools can be generated by the school administrator, parents, or the HR Department. Many times, the conflict may be a result of an incident at the school or some ongoing conflict that then grows into a dispute, which could endanger the school’s reputation. At times it is miscommunication that then leads to a dispute.

Our school mediation service aims to provide a safe forum for everyone involved in the conflict to express their concerns. We aim to provide those involved with an understanding of what has happened and then move forward with the agreed actions.
