The 'bus stop' for children who feel lonely

A school in Surrey has introduced a special area in the playground, called a Buddy Bus Stop, to help children who feel sad or find themselves on their own at break time.

Children who want a friend go and stand by the sign, and if other children see them there, they invite them to play with them. It's an idea which is being picked up by a number of schools around the country.
