Peer mediation programs have now become an established part of the mediation literature, and a number of useful literature reviews exist.1 A relatively neglected area of study is the variation that occurs in implementing school peer mediation programs and this variation stems from two main sources. First there are variations in the programs themselves. Secondly the same program may be implemented differently in different school contexts. The focus of this paper is an investigation to audit and profile peer mediation programs in NSW schools and to explore the variability in the implementation of mediation programs between State primary and secondary schools. 530 NSW schools were surveyed. Nine percent reported some experience of using peer mediations.
