Bronze Ambassadors - Sports Crew Leaders

The role of a Bronze Ambassador is: to be a positive role model within school, to help increase participation in PE and School Sport, to promote the positive values of sport and the School Games Values and to be a young person’s voice on PE and School Sport within their own school.

We select a boy and girl each academic year to be our Bronze Ambassadors, these are selected through our sports crew applications. Each Ambassador will receive training through our our membership to the WS Active Society. 


Play Leaders

The Shrubbery School believes that we all have the right to an enjoyable playtime. In order to help achieve this we will be running our lunch time & break time club called ‘Play Leaders’ in Nursery, Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2.

‘Play Leaders’ work with Mr Griffin our PE lead and the lunch time supervisors to learn traditional playground games and encourage children to play cooperatively. The aim is that the ‘Play Leaders’ can then lead groups of other children to play these games.Each week, the 12 ‘Play Leaders’ will rotate so they still get chance to enjoy participating in activities themselves. We hope this scheme will give lots of children opportunities to learn new skills and games. The play leaders get to wear special hats or yellow bibs so other children know who they are.


Sports Crew

Our Sports Coach runs lunchtime sports clubs for pupils during the week. Later in the year these specifically target non-participants in extra-curricular sports clubs (C4L Clubs) but are also particularly enjoyed by children whose parental commitments mean they cannot attend after-school activities. These clubs are part of our Active Play programme to encourage healthy lifestyles and social enjoyment. Alongside the coach Our Bronze Ambassadors lead the sports crew to develop and deliver activities to Foundation, KS1 and KS2 children throughout break times and lunch times.
