Play Leaders

Play Leaders 2022-23


At Seaburn Dene Primary Schools pupils from Upper Key Stage Two trained to support pupils, sports and activities across school as Playleaders. Miss Scott from Keep Active NE and Mr Day, our Community Sports Activator Apprentice, worked with Year 5 and 6 pupils each Friday afternoon in the first half of Autumn Term to complete the Playground Leaders Award.

Those successful applicants for 2022-23 are:

Y6: Pixie, Amelia S, Rosie, Rachel, Sophie, Eva, Esme, Bella, Max, Amelia D, William.
Y5: Anya, Harry, Ava and Mathilda.

The aim of Play Leaders is to introduce and develop leadership skills by training children to organise activities for other children in the playground. One of the aims of the scheme is that it will increase the amount of physical activity undertaken
 and ensure all children enjoy their playtimes, with a range of activities available and groups of children to play with. The scheme will also hopefully raise self-esteem and self-confidence of the leaders.

Following their training, Play Leaders will help support the organisation and purchasing of playground and sports equipment.
Each lunchtime, our Play Leaders will organise an activity for either KS1 or KS2 children. Any child is encouraged to join in if they need someone to play with or want to take part. Play Leaders will also ensure that our play equipment is being used responsibly and shared. The Play Leaders will wear a purple Play Leaders hoodie, so they are always visible and easy to find by the staff and children.
The Play Leader Timetable will be displayed in Year 5 and 6, so the children know what is happening and who is on duty.
