Within the primary phase we felt it would be beneficial to develop leadership skills and relationships between peers.
Some year 6 children have been selected as young leaders to help develop positive relationships through developmental movement with some of our younger children.
On a Wednesday afternoon with the support of a trained adult the young leaders are being trained through a range of activities and games that require one-to-one relationships to develop their leadership roles.
The main aim is for our young people to gain confidence, trust and respect and be able to demonstrate these learned skills throughout the curriculum and school day. They will also develop body awareness as a whole, physical and emotional security and communication.
These will enhance the various types of relationship play through;
1. Caring Relationships
2. Sharing Relationships
3. Against Relationships

Over the past couple of weeks young leaders have been given a variety of introductions into leadership, giving the younger pupils knowledge of how to organise and lead small games and activities that can be used as part of sports club sessions and on the school yard during break and lunchtimes.
Pine class leaders aim to help our younger members develop leadership skills such as organisation, communication and teamwork, as well as helping to build confidence and self-esteem as they take on responsibility of leading their peers and younger children. The children have really enjoyed their roles within large group activities and understand the importance each individual plays within a team.
