Playground Friends is a project that was introduced by Stockton Council. It is aimed at enhancing positive, co-operative play in schools and encouraging less confident children to interact with their peers. At Myton Park, we recognise that our role is to develop the education of the whole child. Through our Playground Friends scheme we provide opportunities for:
Thinking skills – Good manners
Physical skills – Physical exercise
Social skills – Co-operation
The Playground Friends teach games and rhymes and wear special caps for ease of identification. They choose younger children to receive recognition awards in our celebration assembly. The outcomes for developing this scheme include:
Improved caring attitudes
Improved sense of responsibility
Improved peer relationships
Improved physical skills
A happier environment
A decrease in bullying
Year 5 children are given the option of becoming Playground Friends. They play an important role in school supporting our younger pupils.
