Sports Leaders


We are Sports Leaders!


When our children reach Year 5 and 6, they have the opportunity to become Sports Leaders.


Our Sports Leaders run lunch time games and activities on the school field and in the playground for all of our children.


The initiative is designed to:

  • Involve all children in group games
  • To ensure playtimes are fun and enjoyable
  • Develop skills in responsibility and leadership
  • Provide all children the opportunity to work with and play with children of all ages.


We currently have 4 Sports Leaders who are responsible for running physical activities of their choice.


Leaders meet once a fortnight with Mrs Roberts to design new games and sports activities. Some sports leaders are involved in the design process where they are responsible for thinking through rules of play and others choose to organise equipment.


Each year, the current Sports Leaders are involved in a transition period in which they pass on their skills to train Year 5 children who have applied to be leaders the following year.


We are open for visits to our lovely school. Come and have a look around. Parents speak very positively about our school's close feeling of community: 'The School is like an extended family, all pupils feel a tremendous sense of belonging'. Pupils make good progress in all subjects. Pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their education. Many pupils make exceptionally rapid progress. There are strong relationships in early years, and children develop positive attitudes to learning based on the care, guidance and support they recieve from staff. Pupils sometimes exceed the expected standards for their age - Ofsted 2017
