At Horsenden, for 2022/23 academic year we will be continuing on with our fantastic programme of Play Leaders. These are children who are picked by Mr White, our Sports Coach, and by their class teachers, for showing sporting prowess and leadership skills.
The Play Leaders are children from Year 4, 5 and 6 who are sports mentors on the playground during lunchtime. At Horsenden we work in partnership with Willow Tree Sports Partnership and our sports coach, Mr White, helps train the children so that they are able run the games effectively.
They take responsibility for organising games and supporting children in being active during lunch time. They take responsibility for the sports equipment used, ensuring it is taken care of used correctly and stored appropriately. They are role models to their peers and support the children in leading healthy active lifestyles.
They work in both KS1 and KS2 on different days, allowing pupils from across the school to benefit from their expertise. This is also beneficial for the sports leaders themselves as it provides them with the opportunity to exercise their leadership skills and interact with peers from different ages ranges.
