School Games Mark Award
We are delighted to have achieved the School Games Mark Gold Award for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Our sporting achievements this year include:
- Increased participation in extra curricular sporting activities.
- Increased participation in level 2 and level 3 competitions both inter and intra school based.
- Opportunities for children to access a more diverse range of sports.
- Increased involvement of our ‘less active’ children.
With our pupils competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded.
