Sport Leaders

Sport Leaders

At Glenthorne, we have our Year 5 Sports Leaders as part of our PE provision, who regularly meet to discuss any ideas regarding physical education. Sports leaders 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 by submitting their application stating why they think they would make an excellent candidate for the job and most importantly, why they want to be one. Sports Leaders are trained at the beginning of the year to lead activities and games with younger children and are taught the important qualities that are needed when working with younger children across school. 

Their responsibilities include:

  • Setting up equipment during PE lessons 
  • Helping out during sporting competitions at Glenthorne
  • Organising kits 
  • Refereeing / Umpiring 
  • Helping out with members of staff during sports events (e.g. leading the warm up for younger before an event) 
  • Arranging playground games at lunchtimes
  • Contributing to the arrangements and organising of Sports afternoons / Sports Day
