Our Play Leaders
The aim of the Play Leader role is to introduce and develop leadership skills in Y5/Y6 children, while making playtimes fun, safe, active and happy for everyone!
Our Play Leaders are trained to organise activities for other children in the playground in order to increase activity in the playground, whilst also helping to develop friendships. The children liaise with our school games coordinator, who sends resources and suggests ideas; she is there to help throughout the year.
