Young Ambassadors Peer Leaders

10 Yr 8/9 students took part in the Youth Sport Trust Peer Leaders course in September. They aim of the programme is to increase participation in those students who are not meeting the guidelines of 60 minutes a day activity. The programme aims to engage those students through using their peers to lead them during simple activity. The peer leaders that have been trained and are excited to lead this fun programme to Year 7s are Charlotte Allen, Alex Bolton, Ellie Dyson, Taylor Briathewaite, Jessica Keggin, Alex Caddick, Levi Gumbs, Elais Gumbs and Tom Hopwood.
The Peer Leaders have started leading sporting activities during tutor time on Tuesday. After 3 weeks they will move these sessions to after school, building up the activity time they lead the sessions. So far we have had 70 Year 7’s raising their heart rates and having fun each Tuesday. A massive success for our leaders so far.
