At Beam, we have Sports Leaders as part of our PE provision, who meet termly to discuss any ideas regarding physical education. Sports leaders have an opportunity to share their own thoughts and opinions with the group and collectively agree on any decisions that are made.

Sports Leaders are trained at the beginning of the year to lead activities and games and are taught the important qualities that are needed for successful leadership. Sports Leaders work across Key Stage 1 and 2 during breaks and lunchtimes each week to lead games and ensure playtimes are inclusive for everyone and that no child is left alone with no one to play with. This role develops important values such a patience, friendship, compassion and kindness as well as building their confidence and communication skills throughout the year.

Sports Leaders help to organise and support events such as Sports Day and give opinions on what they would like our PE and sport provision at Beam to offer in the future.
