Lunchtimes at Walsall Wood are calm and happy. Children are engaged in activities and love to play with their many friends. Behaviour is excellent because we have positive, preventative systems in place.
Our Playground buddies are a daily lunch time patrol that lead on positive behaviour. Trained in mediation, they are able to support with any minor disputes to resolve conflict.
Each day Y5 Buddies, led by a Y6 Sergeant, patrol their zones to make sure everyone is engaged and happy. Our Y6 Captain, oversees his team and has the vital role of informing Mr Green, staff lead, of anything that concerns him.
How Can Buddies Help?
