Multi coloured buddy bench friendship bench at school
The buddy bench is an easy to apply practice for schools to encourage greater positive actions and create responsibility and friendships.
The idea of the buddy bench started in the USA, and the concept is simple but highly effective when supporting mental health initiatives within the school environment. The Buddy bench principle is to allow pupils who feel left out or on their own to know that sitting on the Buddy Bench indicates to Buddy bench monitors, either appointed older pupils or school staff that they are in need of a friend.
The benefit is that those appointed take the initiative to sit and talk or befriend the individual for either talk or to include in play.
Staff too benefit as this creates a positive attitude within the playground at a time when due to large numbers of children being out it is impossible to spot every instance of children feeling detached or left out.
Schools have commented on the effectiveness of the initiative in creating a sense of empathy and responsibility within others in the school and has also aided in a reduction of bullying issues where the Buddy bench initiative has been employed.
