Playground Buddies

Our playground buddies went through a 3 hour training package with the headteacher, a support assistant and an experienced teacher and ex police superintendent so that they could learn how to support our children to make good choices at lunchtimes.  Our buddies help the lunchtime staff with dinner hall routines, help design games with children and assist children who need help.  They know how to recognise discriminative or inappropriate behaviour and will listen to children before referring problems to the welfare staff who will then manage what happens next.  We are very proud of our buddies!
