Buddy and Eco Programme


Our Playground Buddy system was first established in 2015 and has grown from strength to strength since. There are currently over 50 Playground Buddies from both the Year 7 classes who work on a rota basis.

The Playground  Buddy system was set up so that children can get involved in making playtime more friendly, fun and safer for everyone.  Playground Buddies are there to assist members of staff who are on duty at playtimes.

The role of the Playground Buddy includes the following: befriending lonely children, helping those who might be hurt or frightened, teaching games to other chldren and looking after play equipment.

This is a very responsible role but it is also an enjoyable one.
