Play Leaders

At Sacred Heart Primary School we are proud to have a Play Leader Scheme! Children in year 5 and 6 have been trained in the organisation of play and sports activities.

The play leaders volunteer during a lunchtime to get out the sports equipment to help groups of children play games together.

To help you recognize the play leaders they wear a bright yellow play leader hat or a yellow top.

These are our play leaders in action!


Here are some of the children’s comments:

“I like being a play leader because you get to make your own games up to play with the children.”

“You can get creative with games and I am creative!”

“We get to spend time with little children.”

“I enjoy throwing the bean bags in the hoops with the children.”

“I need to be kind and caring.”

“We look out for the other children.”

“Who knew basketball could be so fun!”
