At Lady Hastings' Thorp Arch, we encourage children to show our school value of friendship at all times throughout the day, inside and outside of the classroom. Our group of play leaders lead outdoor games and encourage positive play for children of all ages. The play leaders meet regularly to create their own timetables, ensuring that everyone gets the opportunity to lead each game available on the playground. Activities range between ball games, co ordination games, teamwork games, skipping, hula hoops and more. The play leaders work with Leeds United Foundation each Friday, to learn new games, skills and techniques which they can teach to others.
