Play Leader Awards

The Play Leader Award is a 6-hour (one-days training) workshop for up to 10 year 5/6 pupils. 


The award focusses on:

  • Developing learner's leadership skills.

  • The importance of effective communication and teamwork.

  • Working in safe environments

  • Planning for Physical Activity

  • Running and Officiating a variety of games and activities

  • Evaluating and reflecting on their performance.

Pupils will complete both physical and written tasks throughout the day guided by an RB Gym and Sport educator. 

Pupils that successfully complete the training will be awarded with a playleader certificate and will have the skills to take on leadership roles to support sport and physical activity within your school.

Often pupils that complete playleader training organize and run outdoor activities for children at break and lunchtimes. 

The award can have a sustainable benefit to your school and can help you to achieve your sport premium aims by:

✔️ Encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes

✔️ Encouraging pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school (such as ‘sport leader’ or peer-mentoring schemes)
