Our current Year 6 children have taken the lead as play leaders this year; whilst our Year 5 children are trained. Each child in Year 5 will be trained, by an outside agency, in how to be a play leader. This is a half day course, which all children in year 5 will complete. This training supports our Upper Key Stage 2 children to take the lead at break times and lunchtimes and lead games for children of all ages.
This role is vital within our school and provides break times and lunchtimes with more focused activities and games. We are looking forward to the new electricity point outside, on the field, and being able to have some music and dance outside at lunchtimes.
Our TAs and Lunchtime supervisors are also trained to support our Play Leaders and lead activities of their own.
