Meet our Playground Leaders...

Why do we have Playground Leaders?

  • To try and make our playgrounds more active.
  • To have good role models at playtimes and lunch times.

What do we do?


Invite other children to join in with our games.

Be there to listen to someone who has a problem

Be a role model

Look around to see if anyone needs a buddy



Teach a new game

Remind others of playground rules


Tell children off

Force children to play games

Lift children up



Playground Leaders training. October 2018.


We are trained and able to use the STEP framework to organise activities on the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 playgrounds.

S- Space. Where is the activity/game going to take place? Size of area you are working in.

T- Task/Rules. Ways to travel.

E- Equipment.

P- How many people can play?

We make sure all rules are explained clearly before the game starts, we answer any questions children have about the game.

We can adapt well known games by changing only one of the above steps. We can also teach skills as well as be there as a listener for anyone who needs someone to talk to on the playground.
