School Council Update

Updated: Jun 17

Previously this year the school council wrote letters to local business’s asking them for support in funding two buddy benches to go onto the playground at school. The School Council came up with the idea of ‘buddy benches’ after a committee member had the idea of creating designated spaces on the playground where children can make friends. Shortly after sending the letter Burton Albion Football Club contacted the committee, informing them that they are going to fully fund the project ! Then on the 28th June 2021 we had a very special visitor that came into school…. Billy Brewer! Billy was very impressed with the committees idea of the buddy benches and even wanted to test them out for himself !
