St Mary Magdalene Catholic Primary School

Play Leaders

Our Play Leaders are responsible for organising and running lunchtime games and activities for the younger children in our school. One of the most important attributes for a Play Leader is to be a positive role model.

At St Mary Magdalene Catholic Primary we link all aspects of our learning to five specific learning powers: Curiosity, Concentration, Co-operation, Resilience and Self-Improvement. Our Play Leaders encourage all pupils to refer to our Learning Powers in all that they do.

As a Rights Respecting School, we use the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC – UNICEF) to underpin the planning and delivery of school-based activities (Article 2, Article 3, Article 12, Article 15, Article 29, Article 31).

Play Leaders lead by example; they teach our children to play fairly and be part of a team, to show resilience when things go wrong, and how to be a gracious winner.
