Sports Leaders

Roles and responsibilities


Sports Leaders are a group of caring Y6 children who organise activities for younger children on the playground at lunchtimes. They are trained at the beginning of the year to lead activities and are taught the important qualities needed for working with young people, such as, communication skills and leadership skills. Not only do they encourage children to join in organised games but they also extend their friendships.


Sports Leaders support staff to lead a daily Wake & Shake dance routine before school starts, on their chosen day, to encourage whole school health and fitness.


Sports Leaders have many important roles, including:

  • Leading warm ups and cool downs from time to time;
  • Being involved in making decisions about PE events and initiatives across school;
  • Lead roles during our annual Sports Day;
  • Modelling excellent sporting behaviour and teamwork.
