Sports Leaders

Once children reach Year 6, they have the opportunity to become a Sports Leader.

Sports Leaders run lunch time games and activities in the playground for Year 3 and 4 children.  The initiative is designed to:

  • Involve children in group games
  • To ensure playtimes are fun and enjoyable
  • Develop skills in responsibility and leadership

We currently have 10 Sports Leaders.  In order to become a Sports Leader, children have to complete an application form and then attend a training session with partner Primary Schools in the Borough.

Each Sports Leader is then allocated one lunch time per week in which they are responsible for running physical activities of their choice.

Sports Leaders meet once a week with Mrs Haines, bringing along their log book in which they record the names of children who regularly take part in their activities, along with any concerns or issues that may need to be discussed. Each year, the current Sports Leaders are involved in a transition period in which they pass on their skills to train Year 5 children who have applied and will take on the role in the following year.
