One of the many ideas previous School Councils have come up with was to introduce Play Leaders at lunchtime. The Play Leaders would assist staff to make lunch time play even more enjoyable for everyone. It was decided that Play Leaders should apply for the position, to ensure the right candidates would be selected for this important job. So far ALL candidates have been accepted, as ALL our pupils are wonderful, caring and friendly children. A compromise was made to accommodate everyone, and the Play Leaders would job-share.
Play Leaders' role is mainly to look after fellow pupils, to make everyone feel included and to make play time a FUN TIME.
A BIG thank you to the previous School Council for the great suggestion and thank you to the Play Leaders for being part of our Lunchtime Team.
