Millbridge Junior Infant and Nursery School

Children  »  Befrienders

Millbridge School runs a Befriender Scheme. Befrienders are Year 6 pupils who are actively involved in the role of caring for and supporting fellow students. They also help school shape their policies on building and behaviour.

They have a positive influence on the climate of the school making it a safer, friendlier community where caring for others is demonstrated and valued.

Befrienders are trained in the limits of confidentiality and how to get help from an adult if someone is getting badly hurt. Primarily they are listening service.
