School sport


Leadership plays a vital role in the school sport programme in a variety of different ways. Undertaking leadership roles enables young people to develop their confidence, communication, teamwork and decision-making skills in a supportive environment.

It also demonstrates to the young people involved that there are numerous ways of getting involved in sport other than competing such as coaching, officiating, time-keeping or scoring.

The competition programme that is delivered by Sports Development is underpinned by the support of the borough's secondary schools in allowing their pupils to take on leadership roles.
