Buddy Bear Friends Whole School Community Approach
Our magical whole school community approach encourages participation from all within the school community to support young children to flourish. Including teachers and nursery/school staff, families, teenagers and communities.
Buddy Bear Friends provides a holistic Programme of fun and educational workshops, activities and teaching resources for infants aged 4-7 years. We are delighted to have gained the support of the Scottish Qualifications Authority's Giving Something Back initiative.
The Programme is intended to support the four capacities for the Curriculum for Excellence and the Getting it Right for Every Child indicators to enhance wellbeing, attainment and achievement. Each element is mapped across these key frameworks for easy reference of learning outcomes.
Fiona Robertson, Head of Education for East Lothian Council, commented: "This project has the potential to become an extremely valuable Anti-bullying tool in the education of infants in their most formative years."
We will soon be offering personal leadership training opportunities for secondary school pupils to train to deliver infants' Buddy Bear workshops with our team.
