We would like to introduce you to our ‘Buddies’ for 2019 – 2020.
We elect school Buddies annually, two from each year group. Our Buddies take their role extremely seriously and work hard to ensure our school provides children with a safe, non- threatening environment in which to work and play. They meet every week with Mrs Jackson to discuss any issues regarding friendship and bullying in school. They also take part in Community activities that promote friendship and kindness.
During the academic year 2018 – 2019 the Buddies worked really hard with Mrs Jackson to look at focused games in the playground.
New resources were ordered, in consultation with the children, and Buddies took part in many assemblies to raise the profile of this issue.
Also they were instrumental in changing our policy from a ‘Behaviour and Discipline Policy’ to a ‘Respectful relationship Policy’.
