Play Buddies

Playground Buddies

Playground buddies consist of our Year 4 pupils; who help the playtime supervisors to ensure playtimes are a happy and safe time for all children.


A rota is in place so all buddies have the same opportunity to be a playground buddy once a week.

The role of playground buddies involve:

  • Helping children find new friends

  • Making children feel comfortable and welcome

  • Including children who are lonely and help them to play games

  • Being positive role models 

  • Demonstrate positive play

  • Giving support to children to find solutions to a problem

  • Being fair and not taking sides

  • Helping children if they fall over and comforting them

  • Helping children to find something they may have lost on the playground

  • Teaching new games

  • Helping to put away playtime equipment
