Every child who starts in Reception chooses a child from year 5 or 6
to be a buddy to them. The children in year 1 and 2 can also ask for a buddy as well.
The job of the older buddy is to look after their young buddy, especially in the playground. This could involve them
finding them a friend to play with or playing with them themselves.
The older children really enjoy the role of being a buddy and are very keen to help the younger ones
to settle into school life.
