Buddy System

We have operated a ‘buddy system’ for a number of years which has proven to be a very successful initiative. ‘Buddies’ are Year 5 pupils who are allocated a new reception pupil to mentor, encourage and support during their first year at school. The benefits are twofold: new pupils are made to feel valued and welcomed; they read with their buddies once a week and enjoy playing with their buddies at playtime, taking pride in sharing their work and achievements with them. For our older pupils, the responsibility through the buddy system helps them to develop leadership skills and become positive role models.
