At Gisburn Road we encourage responsibility and community through our Buddy programme. Year 5 children are given the option to spend their play times helping in the reception school yard - building positive relationships with the younger students and modelling good play behaviour. All of the children love this system which we feel really embraces the school values.

"The best thing about being a buddy is playing and interacting with the kids."

"I really like looking after the little ones."

"It's fun when year 5 come to play with us."

"My favourite thing about being a buddy is making people happy."
