Our School Council devised an opportunity for children at St Jude’s to have greater responsibility in the playground and lead games and activities for other children. This initiative became known as the ‘Lunchtime Play Leaders’.
The role was advertised in assembly by our senior School Councillors in June 2016. Children were invited to complete an application form and attend an interview.
The Leaders are hugely appreciated in both KS1 and KS2 and have a range of responsibilities: setting up the playground activities, supporting smaller children in the dining hall, leading games and handing out Gold Cards for great behaviour choices.
They work in tandem with the Peer Mediators to help resolve any disagreements if they arise.
