Playtime Pals are our perfect role models for demonstrating the character behaviours Compassion and Respect. These children are passionate about ensuring that all children have a safe, fun and happy playtime and that everybody has a friend.
Playtime Pals willingly give up their own playtime to be around to support children who may feel lonely, or have hurt themselves and need help.
There are 10 Playtime Pals per year group who I meet termly to discuss any issues.

Look our for the children wearing an orange jacket if you need help at playtime.
Peer Support Training
Some of our Playtime Pals have completed the 'Peer Support Training Programme'. This provides children with the skills and support they need to help others on the playground. At the training, the children take part in a number of fun activities that will aid them in their role as a Playtime Pal. Children learn how to be a good listener, work as part of a team and the importance of body language.
