Buddy System

Buddy System

We are delighted to offer Beechlawn Buddy System again this year.

A buddy system pairs older students with younger students and asks them to support one another with specific tasks or skills.

The benefits are twofold, the older children learn to take on responsibility, while the younger children know that they have a fellow student they can confidently turn to for support and this helps form better social bonds across school years.

Buddy systems help to promote friendship and support between older and younger peers through regular collaboration, fostering a sense of whole-school community. They also create friendships that enable both older and younger ‘buddies’ to bond more closely with their school, increasing the likelihood of more positive school behaviour for all students.
