Friendship Bench           

The friendship bench, is a special place in our school playground where a child can go when they want someone to talk to.

When a child feels the need for a friend to talk to, he or she can show this by using the friendship bench. Other children and staff will recognise this as a sign that some help, support or comfort is needed and will come to talk with the child.

The friendship bench is a means by which a child can seek support at any time and for any reason—from seemingly trivial matters to more serious concerns—and encourages children to ask for help when they are worried.
