Buddy Benches Junior School

One innovative new way we are working on helping all our pupils get the most out of breaktime is with these delightfully creative buddy benches in our playgrounds. Since September 2018, several newly decorated benches have been installed and the children have definitely understood their purpose, to great effect. When a child is in need of a friend, they'll sit on a bench and sure enough, someone will come to their rescue! 

"I was on my own," said one year 4 pupil, "but then my friend came to play with me." 

 The only way to have a friend is to be one!
