Nurture and support
When each child enters the Reception class, they are assigned a buddy from Year 6. The buddy’s job is to nurture, providing support and encouragement outside of the classroom. Strong friendships are made over the year and the buddies are often seen playing together in the playground at lunchtime. At the end of the year a cup is awarded to the Best Buddy. Best Buddy 2016 was Hannah Hall-Tomkin.
