Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

EAL Buddies

Here are our EAL Buddies at Phoenix!

Our Buddies have had a training session with Gill Rowlands from EMTAS.  They discussed what qualities a buddy needs to have.

Gill discussed the many different reasons that have meant that families have had to leave their homes.

The children discussed how new children to school may be feeling and how they could make them feel welcome.

The children discussed how they felt when they left home.



Quotes from children about being a buddy:


Abass said, "Without any friends you would be very lonely. Friendship comes first."


Alisha said, "We need to help new children belong."


Goral said, "Show them where things are."


Cady said, "I will make them smile."


Dean said, "We need to be kind and help them."
