School Games Gold!

We are pleased to announce that following our School Games Mark application we have gained the Gold Award!

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.

As a school we have gained the award for our commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive sport throughout the year. We provide a number of competitive opportunities through school v school competitions, house events and sports days. All children within school have the opportunity to compete competitively in lessons and during house sports events. As part of our application we were asked to fulfil criteria and provide evidence in the areas of participation, competition. workforce and clubs.

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and sports council members for supporting and running a number of events this year.
