Polly Walker

Polly Walker is an accredited mediator, having joined Global Mediation as a panel member in 2014, moving to the role of In-House Mediator during 2018.

Polly’s area of expertise resides in special education. Originally training as a primary school teacher, she transitioned to a career focusing on special educational needs, working closely with children and young people presenting with a range of special educational needs, and their families and relevant professionals, within a variety of educational settings. She is committed to all matters of social inclusion and as a result, became a published author, having written and illustrated two children’s books with themes around diversity, self-esteem, and conflict resolution.

Polly is extremely passionate about mediation, viewing the process as a valuable opportunity for empowerment, cohesive problem solving and the development of positive communication and mutual understanding. She is highly regarded for her approach – she is professional and assertive, yet warm and engaging, and wholly committed to fairness and neutrality. She has extensive experience of mediating SEN disputes, as well as workplace and community disagreements.

Polly lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and two young daughters, where she loves to be in the great outdoors as much as possible; she can also often be found creating mixed media artworks.
