The Full Islington Active Leaders programme is delivered over 4 sessions and will cover the roles and responsibilities of leadership, the key aspects to leading, setting up and delivering activities which includes; communication, area, people, equipment, task and time. The programme has a games based approach that will introduce pupils to these skills and provide numerous opportunities and plenty of experience leading activities. Then in the final session pupils will create and deliver their own games.
Pupils receive a log book to support their training and receive a certificate for completing the programme.
The full active leaders programme is usually delivered over 4 x 30-60 minute sessions.
Playground games offer
We will introduce, share and practice a range of playground games and activities pupils can run or lead themselves at break times. we'll focus on the game, setting up, rules, scoring and safety so pupils can just pick up the basics and play in the playground.
The playground games offer is a single session of 30 minutes - 1 hour, such as lunchtime. Additional sessions can be organised. The games offer could also be done as a staff session for some ideas of activities with pupils or we can share the resources if a training session is not preferred.
We will support pupils to organise and delivery a competition in school. We'll work on some of the skills of the full active leaders programme and competition organiser skills, but focus attention towards a specific sport or selection activities for a competition, festival or sports day at school. We will work with pupils to plan, prepare and run an event either amongst their bubble or to other groups if possible.
