We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Bronze Mark Award for the 2017/18 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 last year included:
- Entering teams into all of the Borough’s sports competitions with huge success.
- Y6 children leading BrackFit organised sports each day at lunchtime providing greater opportunity for all children to participate in sport.
- Providing a large array of different sports after school clubs including parent run clubs.
- Having a KS1 and KS2 Sports Day as well as a School Games Day.
- Providing 2 hours of PE to each class per week.
With a total of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, 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 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 this year.
A special thanks to all children, parents and teaching staff who helped this become possible.
We look forward to applying once again in 2018/19!
