Sport is an important part of our ethos at Orleans Primary school and as part of this, pupils in Year 6 have the opportunity to apply to become a Sports Leader, a role which brings great responsibility and enjoyment. It is a role which has developed over the past 3 years into one which allows pupils to become role models within the school as well as developing their basic coaching skills in a range of sports.
Our Sports Leaders, who will be easily identifiable in their high visibility jackets, will run and support other children in new games and staying active whilst having fun. They set up games and activities every lunchtime and ensure that all children are playing co-operatively. The Sports Leaders play an invaluable role in encouraging others to try new games and sports and to feel that they belong in our school community.
