his research considered the extent to which a CHIPS (Childline in Partnership with Schools) peer mentoring programme, in place in a South Wales high school, is implemented to best benefit the pupils and staff of the school. It focused on the perceptions ofthe year 7 form tutors, responsible for the pastoral support of year 7 pupils, the focus of the mentoring programme and of the staff with a more senior role in the implementation and monitoring of the programme. In particular it sought to ascertain how far staff perceived themselves to have a role in the working of the programme; the benefits of the programme for both mentors, mentees and staff; and the effectiveness of the current implementation of the programme. The research examined literature surrounding bullying in schools; different types of bullying; the effect of bullying on the victim; the bullying triangle; the bystander; anti-bullying interventions; and peer support programmes, with particular reference to the CHIPS (Childline in Partnership with Schools) peer support programme. Data was collected through the qualitative content analysis of documented informati on ; questionnaires distributed to the six year 7 form tutors; and the semi-structured interviewing of the members of staff considered to be key players in the implementation of the progtamme. The research showed that staff perception was that the form tutor-mentor aspect of the programme was successful but the additional aspects ofthe drop in centre and the close monitoring of a named adult had failed to meet expectations. The research lv also provided some useful suggestions from the participants as to additional provision which would enhance the effectiveness of the programme.
