Housebuilders McCarthy and Stone donated the brightly-coloured bench - which is now positioned in the playground - and it's hoped it will give pupils a special place they can go if they are looking for a companion.

Jane Mackie, headteacher at Kents Hill School, said: “By having a buddy bench in the playground, our children can be there for each other when someone needs to talk or find someone to play with – supporting these core values. We are delighted with the bench and are extremely grateful to McCarthy and Stone for their kind donation.”
