As a school council, we discussed how we wanted the buddy bench to be used and re-launched, as we felt it wasn't being used properly.
Each class discussed new rules for the bench and we came together as a council and agreed upon rules and information that we wanted displayed on the bench, in the form of posters.
Mr Stroud and Mrs Shute helped re-launch the bench by talking to the school about how it is for children feeling lonely as well as children wanting to make new friends.
They also helped one of the year six council reps to cut the red ribbon on our special "Re-launch day"!
Our anti-bullying ambassadors have agreed to help monitor the bench along with everyone in the school.
