Play Leaders

What are Play Leaders?

Play leaders are a group of caring children who have been trained to organize activities for other children on the playground. They encourage children to join in games and to extend their friendships.

Play leaders form a vital part of play time at Leagrave Primary School. These pupils work together to create a safe, fun space for the other children to enjoy whilst out on the playground. They work with the Play Lead to organise games, resolve disagreements and ensure that all children have someone to play with. The Play Leaders attend half termly meetings with the Play Lead to discuss new ideas and report on what has occurred on the playground. Play Leaders need to be kind and helpful children who strive to support others. They must have good communication skills including listening carefully and speaking clearly.

Play Leaders volunteer their time to help and improve play times at Leagrave Primary School and are recognized by their Play Leader hats and badges.
