Every year many children in Year 5 and 6 apply and are successful in becoming West Lodge PALs for the Year. These children receive training and will help staff in the playground at lunchtime. They are available to teach other children new games, to be a listening ear and to help resolve any conflicts on the playground. They are responsible for making sure that all children have their rights met in the playground. The number of children interested in becoming PALs over the past few years has been incredible – Last year, we appointed over 50 children to take on the role. Congratulations to all the newly appointed PALs.
