At Mayfield, we have a fantastic scheme called Sports Leaders. Sports Leaders are children from Year 5 and 6 who were selected by teachers getting together to discuss suitable candidates, Sports leaders have already had specialist training so that they can deliver 10 minute Shake Up (https://www.nhs.uk/10-minute-shake-up/shake-up-zone) sessions with KS1 children during break and lunch times. They will also help organise intra school competitions, which will run in houses throughout the school. On top of these important roles, they will be utilised throughout the school to help with the organisation of PE and Sport whilst also reporting on what is going on around the school. Pupils will link with the Schools Sports Organising Crew (SSOC) each term to discuss ways to further develop PE within the school.
Hopefully, with the skills, these pupils will learn at Mayfield Primary School, they will go on to complete their Level 1 in Sports Leadership once they turn 13.
