Playground Pals are voted for within their classes in Year 2 at the beginning of each academic year. Each class nominates one boy and one girl, who show a caring nature and friendly personality. The main role of the Playground Pals is to integrate the Year 1 children onto the playground after their transition from Foundation Stage. Ensuring the children feel part of the school community is the main aim, through playing games and just being there to listen.The Playground Pals role is vital to maintaining good friendships both on and off the playground. An exciting new addition to the playground is our ‘Buddy Bench’. Chosen and painted by the Playground Pals, they now have the job of connecting with anyone sat on it, to highlight any children that could do with their support.
