School Mediation


We understand that sometimes communication between those involved in a child’s education can break down and become difficult, resulting in conflict. We believe that positive experiences of education are crucial to a young person’s development, and that good relationships between the school, the parent(s) and the child make a real difference to educational outcomes. All our mediators have extensive experience in educational settings through their work with Releasing Potential School and can work on school mediation cases.

Releasing Potential offers school mediation in the case of a breakdown of a relationship between school and parents, students and teachers, or students and their classmates. We specialise in restorative approaches to working with those in dispute, and our mediators are all qualified in Restorative Justice Facilitation (RANE).

Our expert educational mediators will arrange to consult with each party in the dispute, assess the potential to resolve the conflict, and arrange a mediation, or series of mediation meetings, to work on getting communication back on track. We cover areas of dispute including:

· Special Educational Needs and Disability

· Admissions

· School exclusions

· Bullying

· Discrimination

The cost of school mediation is dependent on the number of parties involved and the number of meetings required. A bespoke quotation will be provided after an initial consultation with one of our specialist mediation team.
