Play Leaders

At Leagrave Primary School we believe that positive experiences at playtimes contribute to the quality of school life. When children enjoy their playtime, they will invariably learn and achieve better than if playtime presents them with a degree of anxiety.

Our Play Leaders support children to help others and promote the essential skills of communication, active listening and problem solving. Play Leaders encourage an awareness of feelings and the ability to make and maintain positive relationships.


These are all roles that are integral to the smooth, day- to- day running of the school, so it is important that we have prefects that are reliable, sensible and committed to their duties. The process:

  1. Children complete applications, stating their suitability for the role
  2. Year 6 teachers and the Senior Leadership Team meet to decide the successful candidates
  3. The successful pupils are awarded with their sashes at a whole school assembly
  4. Prefects complete daily duties and are rewarded with a treat for their dedication at the end of each half term
