Play Leaders:

At Throston Primary School, we encourage children to develop as individuals. One of the ways we try to encourage this is a ‘Play Leading Scheme’. The scheme promotes children’s well-being, abilities, social skills and team work. It also encourages the older children to organise games for the younger children, it promotes the children’s organisation, communication and responsibility skills and most importantly they all have fun!

Our play leaders volunteer their time to support the younger pupils in Reception and Key Stage 1 at play times to establish a happy play time for all children. They are also rotated on a lunchtime to provide support and activities in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

They have received training on how to deliver different games at break time. As well as delivering traditional playground games, the children have lots of play equipment to enjoy.

Another of the aims of the scheme is that it will increase the amount of physical activity undertaken during playtime/lunchtime.
