Fantastic Year Fives

11th February 2022

Fantastic Year 5's

Buddy Project 1

Our Playground Buddy Course has really taken off! 

This year we started a brand new project in Swale Schools. Hot on the heels of our Peer Mentor success we offered primary schools a course for Year 5 & 6, training them to be playground buddies. 

The course is run over 6 weeks, with 45mins per session, filled with discussion, activities, and learning. This is offered for free to swale schools. 

Over the last few months we have 'graduated' over 40 fantastic pupils as Playground Buddies and they have been super excited to get started and to gain the converted 'Buddy Lanyard!'. We have run this project in Ospringe, Davington, Milton Court, Rose Street, and Thistle Hill and have three more schools registering interest for next term. Our course has had fabulous feedback from pupils, teachers and parents and we are so thankful to them for trusting us with this new project. 

Buddies make the playground Fun, Safe & Inclusive and we can't wait to see how they get on with these new roles!
