December 2020


A  big thank you to our Llan Buddies who have continued to help others in our school this term.

Llan Buddies have made sure that others on their podlet always have someone to play with, that we are being kind, and everyone is happy.

Have a lovely Christmas everybody!

  • Kind

  • Helpful

  • Fun to play with

  • Sensible

  • Easy to speak to

  • Always got your back 

  • Funny

  • Help you when you are sad

 In the next buddies' meeting we are going to discuss when we need our friends the most.


Autumn Term News


Buddies have been working hard all Autumn to ensure our yard is a safe and friendly place to play.

The buddies attend regular meetings to update each other on what is happening in our school and how they are finding their role.

During the cold months of December you could often see the flashes of orange vests running around come rain or shine!
