Once children reach KS2 they have an opportunity to become sports leaders. Sports Leaders run lunch time games and activities in the playground for KS1 and KS2 children. The initiative is designed to:
- involve children in playtime games
- 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, attend sports clubs regularly and have a passion for sports. They then attend a training session with partner Primary Schools in the Borough. This is run inline with ‘Change for Life’ initiative and Sainsbury’s School Sport Games program.
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 regularly, bringing suggestions and ways forward along with any concerns or issues that may need to be discussed.
