School Games Silver Mark Award for the 2021/22
We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Silver Mark Award for the 2021/22 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in
2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school’s engagement in competitions, after school club provision and leadership opportunities. We are judged against a national benchmark and it is also used to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our events possible. We are committed to using the School Games to try and engage those young people who haven’t previously been active or represented our school and to try and ensure that all our students have a positive experience and want to try out new activities beyond school too in our community. We believe in the power of physical activity and school sport as a school and give opportunities to those young people that need it most either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas linked to the five School Games outcomes and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to Mr Vickery and Mr Bradley for all their support, time and effort to provide such amazing opportunities for all of our children.
We look forward to applying once again in 2023 and hope to continue our sporting success to achieve Gold!
