We have a school buddy system which has been running for a number of years and it is a great success. The children volunteer their time to help in key areas around the school. Some of their duties include helping in both the Nursery and Reception, playing games and supporting our younger pupils and offer help with drinks and cutlery during lunchtime. Buddies organise and lead popular games or activities on the playground and encourage children to get involved and are a great support to the younger children during their first years in school.
Here’s what some of our buddies said about what they enjoy about being a School Buddy
