H2H is a Peer Support Group here at Matthew Moss High School.
The learners apply to become a H2H by filling in an application form. If they are successful they then have an interview with Mrs Darnbrough and one of the other Peer Mentors.
When they are appointed to H2H they are given a full day’s training by the Mentors and other guests. The training covers Child Protection, open and closed questions, body language/communication skills, team building activities and ideas of what they would like to do with H2H.
Year 8-10 students are able to apply. H2H meet once a fortnight to talk about upcoming events/training or any concerns/ ideas they may have.
In the past we have had the School Health Practitioners, Mind, Hearing Impaired Team, Visually Impaired Team and Young Carers in to talk to the team with regard to their work and how the team can support other peers in school.
H2H help with transition and attend local Primary schools talking to the new Year 7 learners and answer their questions. They support them on the move up days too.
H2H work on a 1-1 basis with learners that feel isolated or that are vulnerable. Also, information may have come up from Primary school that certain students will need extra support during lunchtimes and breaks.
H2H organise raising money for their chosen charity (changes from year to year). This usually takes place over Anti Bullying week and the activities encourage everyone to join in and have fun while passing the Anti Bullying message on.
H2H has now been running successfully at Matthew Moss for the past 10 years.
