Once children reach Year 5/6, they have the opportunity to become a Sports Leader. Children must complete an application form and then attend weekly training sessions ran by Mrs. Girt.
The initiative is designed to:
. To understand what makes a good role model
. To plan and deliver sporting activities to younger children
. To gain a First Aid certificate level 1
. To run reception and KS1 Sports Day
. To understand what good housekeeping means – reporting any equipment damages, keeping the PE shed tidy
. Develop skills in responsibility and leadership
The children are asked to interact with younger children this could be of a lunchtime or break time. On occasions they might be asked to help out at a competition for younger children.
Weekly meetings also take place; this is the time to share ideas mainly how to improve PE within in our school or to raise any concerns that they might have.
