At Chester le Street CE Primary School we are committed to creating a peaceful, inclusive school and to helping children have fun on our school playground. We deal with any possible conflict in a positive way.

Children from Year 6 volunteer as ‘Buddies’, on a day-to-day basis, in our Lower School Yard, during morning Break and Lunchtimes.

Being a ‘Buddy’ is a responsible and rewarding job, helping fellow pupils to have fun, feel happy and be safe. Our Buddies have had to apply for this special role and be nominated by their peers.  Buddies participate in an on-going training programme and are managed by Mrs Moran.
