Leadership Programmes

Presdales School have received Sports Leaders UK Academy Status and are one of only six schools in the Eastern region, and 99 schoolsin the whole country, to have done so. Thank you Presdales for your leaders. Without you, the Partnership could not deliver the highest standard of opportunities to our children.


Leaders ensure events can be run; KS1 festivals, School Games competitions, participation festivals and 'Come and Try It' events all rely on volunteer leaders. Volunteering has always been about helping others – but it can also help you. There are so many benefits:

  • Try out new types of work
  • Get experience that looks good on your CV
  • Make a difference to the lives of people in your community
  • Learn new skills like leadership, problem solving, and working in a team
  • Improve your confidence, initiative and self -awareness
  • Get training and qualifications
  • Meet new people and make contacts that could lead to offers of paid work
  • Get references to use in job applications
  • Get satisfaction from doing something useful!

As a leader you will use life skills, be a role model and inspire! Children say:

“Leaders make you feel happy because they want you to have a good time”

“The best leaders make sure everyone gets to join in”

And from a Leader:
“Once you volunteer you can see you gain more than you give. You see how much difference you can make”

Get involved – Jump in – It’s worth it. Believe in yourself – believe you can make a difference.
