Play Leaders 2016-17

Play Leaders aim to encourage our younger children in KS1 to play cooperatively. They also educate others with ideas of new games to play on the playground.

Each year a group of Year 6 children volunteer to become Play Leaders to assist and lead playground activities. Every day, both at morning playtime and lunchtime, they will spend time with the children from KS1, rotating around the year groups to give each child the chance to participate. Play Leaders also support during wet play.

All Play Leaders are trained at the start of each academic year giving them an opportunity to acquire the skills needed to work with younger children, learning lots of fun and engaging activities to share with others.
