Sports Leaders

Sports Leaders


Who they are:

Young sports leaders are children who are chosen from year 5 and 6. Sports leaders are volunteers who want who show great leadership qualities, or want to develop their leadership qualities, are kind, patient, confident and have a strong interest in sports. 


Our Sports Leaders have all been trained through the Ashington Sports Partnership where they worked alongside children from other primary schools to learn a range of games, activities and the skills needed to be a sports leader.


What they do: 

Sports leaders support active sessions during playtimes to engage children within different types of sports. They meet once a half term with the school council to talk to the children, receive feedback and reviews on how they can improve their activities. Sports leaders run activities for Sport Relief and sport’s day.


The benefits of Young Sports Leaders are that it encourages young people to take responsibility and develop leadership skills. It also continues to develop skills such as organisation, communication, confidence and self esteem alongside planning and reviewing activities. Another huge benefit is the co-operation which helps develop key social skills.


The Young Sports Leaders at Ellington Primary School are a main part of the school community. We have 8 amazing children who have taken on the role of becoming a sport’s leader. They have enhanced their leadership qualities by engaging children across the years in fun and inventive activities. They use their initiative to adapt and tailor the activities to the needs of the children within our school to make breaktimes more fun and exciting for all.
