School Buddies are appointed children from Year 4 that help out at every break time. All year 4 children are given the opportunity to become a Buddy and we have many willing volunteers. Twelve children are selected each term, we partner them up and provide the necessary training for this role.
Their duties include taking the younger children back to their classroom after break, putting away any play equipment, sorting out minor friendship issues and stepping in if anyone needs a friend. We have a rota in place to ensure that everyone gets to complete the full range of duties.
