The Cheaton Friendship picnic table is part of Neptune Street Furniture's Friendship range.
The Friendship range is designed around the concept of addressing loneliness and fostering friendship on the playground.
Any children who are upset, have no one to play with or who wish to talk about a concern can go to the Friendship Seat or Buddy Bench.
Lunchtime supervisors, designated buddy pupils or any pupil can foster a sense of friendship by looking after, chatting to or playing with a child sat on a friendship seat or buddy bench
The friendship playground furniture is ideally:
Two seats installed at right angles to each other encourage talking, although it is often a good idea to have some single seats for people who actually want to be alone. You can even have a different friendship range product, colour or design for each key stage or year group.
Friendship playground furniture is produced in hard wearing durable materials such as metal, concrete and recycled plastic.
