Sports Leaders

Date: 4th Oct 2017 @ 7:33pm

Today we launched a Sports Leader project with Sapphire Class.

The project aims to:

  • Encourage younger pupils to improve their sport and games skills
  • Encourage all children to have an active breaktime and lunchtime, keeping them fit and healthy
  • Allow older children to set a positive example for younger children
  • Help the lunch time supervisers
  • Make sure that all children are playing safely
  • Ensure that everyone can have a happy, fun and safe breaktime and lunchtime, every day
  • Make sure that everyone has someone to play with and no one is left out
  • Give older children a chance to practice some sports coaching skills

Today we talked about leaders we know, and the qualities they have which make them successful leaders. We then talked about some of the jobs a Sports Leader might do:

  • Take responsbility for PE equipment, keeping it in good condition and suggesting new/replacement items for the school to buy
  • Setting up and packing away PE lessons
  • Organising games and play time and lunch time
  • Encouraging everyone on The Daily Mile by marshalling & tail running
  • Help staff on sports day
  • Lead warm ups at the start of PE lessons

Those children interested in becoming a Sports Leader have been given an application form which needs to be completed and handed back to Mr Rickaby by Wednesday 11th October at the latest.  The newly appointed Sports Leaders will be introduced to the school in an assembly the following week.
