Our Play Leaders
Being a Play Leader is a big responsibility which only Year 4 children get to take on. Before becoming a play leader, 10 carefully chosen children attend a training session at Arnold Middle School organised by the Redborne Sports Partnership.
Each week three Play Leaders choose games to play with the children every lunchtime. Each leader has their own booklet with criteria they have to meet, e.g. run a club, write a sports festival report or run a whole school event. If 5 or more of the criteria are achieved a gold medal is presented, to the Play Leader, at the end of the school year. Play Leaders who have not met this criteria can still achieve a silver or bronze award. Mrs Godin oversees the Play Leaders and encourages the pupils to work towards their goals.
Play Leaders work really hard, holding regular meetings and generating new ideas to introduce to the school. All of our pupils really enjoy engaging with the Play Leaders and look forward to break times. In our current term we are running:-
We believe that being a young leader helps develop the children, acquiring key skills that they can take on to Middle and Upper schools.
