Playground squad is led by Mrs Warner and is made up of children from Years 4 and 5, working closely alongside the MSAs at lunchtime.
Children from Year 4 and 5 may apply to join Playground Squad at the start of each new term. The number of children involved fluctuates but is usually approximately 30 children in total.
The roles and responsibilities of Playground Squad are to allocate equipment at the start of break and lunchtime and to put it away at the end. At lunchtime, Playground Squad members are responsible for getting out the larger pieces of play equipment and helping the other children to play with it or organising group activities. Each Playground Squad member wears a hi-viz vest when they do their duty once per week, making them easily identifiable by the other pupils and adults on the playground.
We meet regularly and discuss what is working well and what could be improved on the playground. These children play an important role in the successful running of playtime and the staff are incredibly grateful for them volunteering their time to make the playground a happier place.
