Greenfield have a long tradition of utilising our children as Young Leaders. Initially, we worked in partnership with our local Sports Academy who provided the training for our Year Six children to become Playground Leaders.
However, as our own school staff have qualified as trainers we now train all of our children from the Summer term of Year Four to become Playground Leaders.
For the first time in 2012-13 we introduced a Sainsbury’s School Games Organising Crew for Sport in the school. This was created to give the children a greater say in the type of P.E. provision that was offered at Greenfield. As this was going to be a long term project the crew members were chosen from Year 4, 5 and 6.
We had two Heads of Crew were both Year Six and were also selected as our Bronze Young Ambassadors. They were involved in the planning and organisation of our School Sports Days and Our Sainsbury’s Your School Games Activity Day.
Our Year Five crew member was in charge of equipment and has led a team of other young leaders to source activities during National School Sports week and our Activity Day. The final member of the crew was from Year Four. Their responsibility was Media Leader. Many of the photographs that appear on the curriculum pages from our event days were taken by them. They have also had opportunity to write match reports from games they have been involved in.
