At Potter Street Academy, every class has a Sports Leader as part of our PE provision. They regularly meet to discuss any ideas regarding physical education as well as have an opportunity to share their own thoughts and opinions with the group and collectively agree on any decisions that are made.
Sports Leaders apply at the start of each academic year, stating why they think they would make an excellent candidate for the job and most importantly, why they want to be one! They are then voted in by their peers in their class.
Sports Leaders are trained at the beginning of the year to lead activities and games with other children and are taught the important qualities that are needed when working with young people. Sports Leaders work with other children during play and lunchtimes each week to lead and referee games and ensure playtimes are inclusive for everyone. This role develops important values such a patience, friendship, compassion and kindness as well as building their confidence and communication skills throughout the year.
Sports Leaders help to organise and lead events such as Sports Day, Sport Relief and give opinions on what they would like our PE and sport provision at Potter Street to offer in the future.
