What is the Young Sports Leadership Programme at Wyton on the Hill?

As part of their transition from primary to secondary school, in their final year at Wyton on the Hill all of our Year 6 pupils undergo training as Young Sports Leaders, with most pupils completing coursework to a standard which is accredited by The British Sports Trust. The course is run by Kyoshi Paddy Swallow, who has many years of coaching experience in many different fields of sport and who also runs our after school pupils’ and parents’ Judo Clubs. It is funded in part by our Olympic Legacy Funding Programme (click here for further details).

 

Why Young Sports Leadership?

We believe that the Young Leader Award is a great introduction to leadership, which gives learners knowledge of how to plan, organise and lead small games, both with their peers and with younger pupils. 

As they work through their units of study in the autumn term, our young leaders develop skills such as organisation, communication and teamwork, as well as looking closely at what makes a good game and how to develop PE skills such as throwing, catching, running, and jumping in themselves and in others. In the spring and summer terms, our young leaders then take on the responsibility of leading sport and PE sessions with younger children, under the watchful eye of Kyoshi Paddy, who provides constructive feedback on the best elements of their sports leadership and how they can improve further.

At the same time, our Year 6 pupils are building the confidence and self-esteem they will need to make the transition between primary and secondary school successfully.
