Children are taken from the school hall where buddies takes place directly to their classrooms by the buddies staff; at the end of the day children are collected from class teachers and walked to the school hall. Our Early Years and Key Stage One children are based in the main school hall and our KS2 children are based in our studio hall.
All children are offered breakfast in the morning and a snack after school. For breakfast children are offered a range of cereal, toast and fruit. After school children might have crackers, sandwiches or be offered a hot option such as beans or spaghetti. There is always a healthy option of fruit and salad for all children and this is actively encouraged.
There are a range of activities on offer both before and after school that are specific to the age of the children. Our buddies is led by Donna Coatsworth and supported by a further five members of staff. The team work across the settings and get to know the children really well. We are lucky that several members of the buddies team also work across the school in a lunch time staff role.
