At Crofton Downs Primary School we have devised a programme to support our students when issues arise in the playground. This system is called Big Buddies. Students receive special training to enable them to act as third party mediators between two or more of their peers, who are caught up in a conflict and want to see it constructively.
We have also created a Play Buddy system, where seniors organise games for students to play at morning tes time.
Both of these groups are easily recognisable as they wear hi-vis vests.
