Buddies

In Dovecote we run Buddies. It is a scheme in which older pupils support younger pupils around school.  The Year Five and Six ‘Big Buddies’ are allocated a ‘Little Buddy’, a younger pupil who would benefit from having some one older to spend time with them in school.  The Big Buddies will do activies and play games at lunchtime once a week with them and also go out their way to chat to their Little Buddy at Playtimes and Dinnertimes. The younger buddies have said how much it has helped them feel happier in school, knowing an older pupil is keeping an eye out for them and is there for them. This is an ongoing scheme which we will continue. This supports our ethos of all pupils working and supporting each other.
