At Maple Tree we have an amazing group of children from across the school, who volunteer every break and lunchtime to be a Playground Buddy. The children's role when in the playground, is to support and encourage children that may have no-one to play with or just wants to play something different with someone else. Our fabulous group are made up of Elin, Victoria, Rosalie, William, Piper, Jake, Harry and Summer. They keep an eye out to see if anyone is sitting on the buddy bench, to make sure everyone is happy and has someone to play with at breaktime. If children do not feel comfortable sitting on the bench, they just need to look for a Playground Buddy with their bright yellow caps!
