Young Leaders and Peer Listeners
The Young Leaders are made up of Yr5 children who work alongside KS1 children to encourage group play and promote positive friendships.
They model how to play a range of playground games and encourage the younger children to join in and have fun together. All Year Five children are expected to participate in this programme in order to give something back to the school.

As part of the school’s commitment to developing responsible citizens who give back to the community, older children carry out peer mentoring in the playground.
They listen to children in the playground and help other children to listen to each other. This is something we are incredibly proud of as a school and the children speak highly of it.
