ESS Leaderboard

The Elms Sport In Schools coach up to 7000 children per week in extra curricular clubs, all of whom are eligible for the ESS Leaderboard.

The Leaderboard is a form of assessment which allows you, the parent/guardian, to track your child’s progress throughout the term.

How Does the Scheme Work?


Once registered, a child will be placed in the relevant discipline based on their chosen sport. There are 3 Leaderboards - football, tennis and multisports.

If a child is registered for various clubs they will be added to more than 1 of the Leaderboards. At the end of each session the coach will award a score to each child out of 10.

Scores are based on 5 key factors – attitude, performance, teamwork, work ethic and improvement.

The score received is then added to the Leaderboard with at least one pupil awarded the ‘Player of the Week’ certificate scoring 10.

For the first 9 weeks of each course, every child’s weekly score will be added to a running total. Then, from week 10 onwards, only the BEST 9 SCORES will remain on the Leaderboard. This means if a child is absent, or a school offers more weeks, everyone has a fair chance of reaching the summit.


For Children

From September 2023, the top 5 children from each leaderboard will all receive the following:

  • 1 x Free Term’s Sports Course
  • 1 x Free Day at one of The Elms’ School Holiday Activity Camps
  • 1 x Personalised Rucksack with child’s initials
  • 1 x Framed Certificate stating their finishing position

For Schools

The top 3 schools from each leaderboard, represented by the most children, will be rewarded with:

  • A Framed Certificate of Achievement

Good luck everybody with the spring 2024 Leaderboard.

“Please pass this on to the team. A great sports day put on for us – parents and staff enjoyed it and, most importantly, the children loved it. Perfectly pitched, timed and lots of enthusiasm.

A big, big thank you and thanks to Jason for putting it together”
