Year 6 Meet their Reception Buddies

When Reception children start at The Willows, they are paired up with a child from Year 6 to be their buddy. Buddies are responsible for ensuring the Reception children settle into The Willows and feel loved as part of The Willows Family.

Yesterday our Year 6 children were awarded their Buddy badges. As a school we spoke about the importance of the role and the impact being a buddy has on the youngest children in our school. When asked, the whole school could remember the name of their buddy from when they were in Year 6. An incredible responsibility to have.
