Playground Buddies

Our school's Playground Buddy scheme is a great success.

This was developed after the School Council decided that at playtimes some children were not getting as much help and support as they needed. 

The School Council introduced Playground Buddies. This is a group of pupils who would help other pupils if they had any problems, were sad or lonely, or wanted someone to talk to or play with. Buddies also initiate games and show children how to play in different ways.  Every pupil in Year 6 takes part in our Buddy Scheme over the course of the year and Year 5 complete their training in the summer ready for the start of the new academic year.
