We have 2 teams of lunchtime buddies who were chosen after completing an application form and attending an interview. We have buddies in years 2,3,4 and 5. All buddies attended an afternoon training course last year before starting their roles.
The buddies are split into Team Bolling and Team Wheatley and are on duty alternate days of the week at lunchtimes. The buddy teams are led by Mrs Robinson & Mrs Chapman.
The buddies all wear a purple vest when it is their day to work. At the end of each week all buddies are "paid" in house points for their work that week.
