Please note due to the 2020/2021 lockdowns, The ESS Leaderboard was suspended from March 2020. It has now been reactivated for the Autumn 2020 term and will continue until December 2021. A brand new format will be launched in 2022.

The Elms coach up to 7,000 children per week in extra curricula clubs, all of whom are eligible for the ESS Leaderboard.

The Leaderboard is a form of assessment which allows you, the parent, to track your child’s progress throughout the duration of their extra curricula activity.

New Format

From Spring 2022 a new format of the leaderboard will be introduced, allowing for a more diverse range of winners from each sport. Children will be added to a leaderboard based on their chosen sport.

As before, children will receive a score out of 10 from their coach at the end of each week. This will be based on traits such as attitude, performance, teamwork and work ethic. Your child’s score each week can be viewed via your parent log in.


Exact details of the prizes will be announced shortly. They will be termly awards and further information will be found alongside each leaderboard.

Should a child be registered (and paid for) by their school, their prize will be replaced by a voucher (to the equivalent value) for the school to purchase sports equipment.

School Award

As well as individual prizes, there are also school awards. These are awarded to the top 3 schools each term who’s children receive the highet cummulative average each term.

How Does the Scheme Work?

  • After each coaching session your child will receive marks out of 10. This mark will determine his/her points for that week e.g. Week 1 – score 8 = 800 points.
  • Points accumulate over one term and the final score at the end of each term determine your child’s place in the relevant Leaderboard table.
  • Those children who attend more that one club per week will be awarded their mean score across the sessions each week.
  • It’s simple – the players with the most points at the end of the competition will be the ESS National Champions.
  • The competition enables your child to compete against other children of all ages and abilities in all different sports whilst learning the major skills required for their particular activity.
