Playground Leaders

What are Playground Leaders?

Playground Leaders are Year 5 and 6 children who lead fun physical activities for our other children at lunchtimes. The volunteers take part in training and then work in small teams to organise games and fun sessions to help keep themselves and others active. The PGLs take it in turns to give one lunchtime per week to the scheme. In doing so, they gain valuable experience of leadership and volunteering, including team work skills, organisational competence and developing their powers of communication.


How do you become a PGL at Woodstock Primary School?

Children in Year 5 & 6 can apply to be a PGL at the beginning of the academic year.  They receive a job description and need to write a letter of application to the Mrs Hipwell and Mr McKay, PGL Co-ordinators.  The applications re-considered and children are invited to attend training to successfully carry out their role.
