We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year.
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:
engaging more than 50% of our pupils in extracurricular sporting and physical activity every week
having targeted provision for the less active young people in our school
providing all of our young people with the opportunity to learn to lead through curriculum PE
having a School Sport Organising Crew in place that leads, manages and officiates in School Games activity
We are extremely proud of our pupils 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 fulfill 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 this year.
A special thanks to:
