Play Leader – Relief

At James Cambell Primary School, we are looking to appoint a highly motivated, creative and enthusiastic Relief Play Leader to join our team. This position will run on a relief basis to help with particularly busy times when extra lunch time supervision is needed.

Play Leaders have a very important role within the school and the contribution they make to the management of the school, and the care and welfare of the children, is valued very highly. Children who are happy and well cared for at lunch time start the afternoons refreshed and ready to learn. Pupils don’t stop learning when they leave the classroom. Lunchtime is another learning opportunity that we always aim to capitalise on. It’s an opportunity to help pupils put into practice some of those messages that are delivered as part of our PSHE curriculum. It is what we call the ‘social curriculum’ and how we can support character education which includes learning about teamwork, volunteering, determination and respect.

If you would like to arrange an informal chat about the role or a visit to the school, then please contact the school office on 020 8270 4684
