Kirtlington C of E Primary School Playground Young Leaders

Playground Young Leaders work alongside an identified member of staff organising and leading games and activities within school.

Playground Young Leaders are trained to lead games and physical activities for pupils within school, at least once a week, during a lunchtime. They plan activities, are responsible for the organisation of the area, the equipment, explaining the rules, demonstrating and then supporting the activity. This helps the Playground Young Leaders to develop many life skills such as, communicating effectively, taking responsibility and working collaboratively but it also means our young people have an opportunity to enjoy well organised games.
