Children in Year 2 are given the opportunity to be a Buddy for one term of the year. Being a Buddy teaches the children about responsibility and encourages them to think about the needs of others, identifying ways they can be of help.

Buddies in each class take turns to hold doors open for children and staff going to assembly, assisting in the lunch hall, putting equipment away at the end of play times and being playtime buddies, ensuring all children have someone to play with.

Buddies can be easily identified by their Buddy Hats which they wear while on duty in the playground.
