Playground Leaders

Each year year 4, 5 and 6 pupils are trained to become Playground Leaders. They receive training to lead younger pupils in structured, fun games at lunchtime. The project has had a massive impact with better behaviour at lunchtimes because pupils are actively engaged in activity, the leaders' confidence and self esteem has risen and schools have reported a real buzz on Huff and Puff days (this is the equipment that is used by the Playground Leaders).

The Playground Leaders are taught skills such as communication, fair play, organising groups/teams and the STEP principle (space, task, equipment, people).
