Pupils  »  Buddies

When children start school in Reception they will have a Year 6 Buddy to help them settle into school. Reception children will meet their Year 6 Buddy in the Summer term before starting school. The children will also receive a welcome letter from their Year 6 Buddy and a DVD all about our school. 

 Year 6 Buddies help the Reception children in many different ways:
  • A role model for behaviour around school
  • A familiar face to play with at break times
  • Someone to help teach lunch time routines
  • A friend in the same house who will encourage you to gain house points
  • Someone to help you know where to sit in assembly
  • Someone to speak to if you feel worried or upset
Remember that Reception children always have their teachers and other staff as support alongside their Year 6 Buddy.
