Sports Leaders

We currently have 24 year 6 pupils trained and ready to deliver small coaching sessions to children in years 1 to 6 by Miss Waterhouse from Parrs wood High School.

Throughout the school year sports leaders will plan a small coaching session and deliver this to children in KS1 & KS2 on a weekly basis.

Benefits of becoming a sports leader:

 

  • Fun course that focuses on leading rather than technical ability.

  • Develops generic leadership skills that will be vital in other areas of life.

  • Allows those children who are not sports superstars to take full and active role in sport and physical activity

  • Increased self confidence that comes through taking responsibility for own and others learning and enjoyment.

 

Benefits for the school:

 

  • Complements other government agendas such as "every child matters" & "Healthy Schools".

  • Provides training for volunteers who can lead sport and recreation activities within lunchtime and after school clubs, Intra school sports tournaments and other sporting events.

  • Improves behavior through increased self confidence and self worth.

  • Gives learners the opportunity to take responsibility, creating young people who are able to act in a mature and responsible way.

  • Increased understanding and empathy with others, helps to create a supportive and co-operative atmosphere.
