Aims of Play Leaders
At Willow Tree Primary School, we encourage children to develop as individuals. One of the ways we try to encourage this is a ‘Play Leading Scheme’. The scheme promotes children’s well-being, abilities, social skills and teamwork. It also encourages the older children to organize games for the younger children, it promotes the children’s organisation, communication, and responsibility skills and most importantly they all have fun! We meet on a regular basis with Miss Duck and our school’s Everton in the Community teacher to discuss new games and play equipment and questions that the children want to ask.
Our play leaders volunteer their time to support the younger pupils at play times to establish a happy play time for all children. They have received training on how to deliver different games at break time. As well as delivering traditional playground games, the children have lots of play equipment to enjoy, ranging from hula hoops, skipping ropes, basketball, netball, bowling, football, and dodgeball with more equipment on the way!
