Leadership and Volunteering


From 2017-2018 we will began appointing a number of KS2 Sports Leaders to prepare school teams for competitions during lunchtimes, they also lead warm ups for the PE lessons and will manage and run activities with KS1 and KS2 children at lunchtimes, playing and leading games. These children record the hours spent working with others to gain a certificate from Amber Valley Sports Partnerships. We also a number of playground friends in KS1 who support other children at playtimes.


The school keeps a register highlighting those children that exceed at sport including those children who exceed in physical education lessons.
