Playground Buddies

If you're looking for a friend to play with, visit our 'playground buddies' on the playground.

Playground Buddies are an amazing group of caring children who have been trained to promote kindness and Anti-bullying Work within the school. They are always eager to encourage children to join in games and to extend their friendships. The leadership skills that they have been taught will also help to raise self-esteem, self-confidence, and encourage inclusion by being active upstanders. They possess great qualities such as being kind, friendly, confident, helpful, and are able to abide by the rules and promote Anti-bullying.

An upstander is someone who acts in the face of injustice or wrongdoing. Being an upstander means standing up for what is right, even if it is difficult or unpopular. This can take many forms, such as speaking out against bullying, helping someone who is being harassed, or advocating for a marginalized group.

It is important to remember that anyone can be an upstander, regardless of their age, gender, race, or background. By taking small actions in our daily lives to stand up for what is right, we can all contribute to a more just and equitable society.

Play Leaders aim to improve the behaviour on the playground by providing a safe area for children to practice their social skills and develop friendships between pupils. They encourage problem-solving and are good role models for their peers by treating children equally. They possess the ability to be honest, reliable, trustworthy, and are great team members.

They are always eager to make new friends and promote kindness on the playground.
