Sports Leadership

At St Polycarp's we promote Sports Leadership for our pupils for the following reasons:

  • to develop confidence and self esteem
  • to encourage our children to work collaboratively
  • to enable children to be innovators
  • to encourage our children to be creative
  • to promote good communication and listening skills
  • to use their passion and enthusiasm to inspire and influence others
  • to enable them to have a route to be helpful and show commitment
  • to enable them to act as role models for other children
  • to give them opportunities to write applications for roles
  • to provide a pupil voice 

The Sports Leadership Groups are as follows:

  • Sports Crew x 12

All the above groups receive training for their roles either within school or off site by Active Surrey providers or other sporting bodies.
