At Heronshaw children have the opportunity in KS1 to apply to become a Heronshaw Playground Buddy.

This is an important role to have within the school. These children perform different tasks such as, looking after children who are lonely, upset or hurt, playing a variety of games, helping the lunch time supervisors and awarding children for good behaviour by handing out our behaviour 'gems'. The children are easily seen by other children and adults by wearing high visibility vests.

Each class in Key Stage 1 has buddies, who support on a rota basis.

How can I be a Heronshaw Buddy?

To become a buddy all you need to do is to fill in an application form and hand it into your teacher. Ask Mrs Calder about more details if your child is interested.
