The School Games Mark is now in its 5th year and rewards schools for their commitment to and development of competition, school sport and physical education.
There are 3 levels of the award Bronze, Silver and Gold and in order to achieve any level of award, schools need to meet very strict prerequisites. To be awarded the Gold level (for the 4th year in a row!) the criteria is very demanding, such as, offering opportunities that attract less active young people, insuring an inclusive 2 hours per week of physical activity, a tracking system to track children's participation, holding and registering a school games day and taking part in a specified number of level 1 (Intra school sports) and level 2 (Inter school sports) events and offering talented young sports people specific support to help them develop their sporting potential, to name but a few.

So a huge thank you to all that have participated and given support over the last years and we look forward to an equally successful, active and enjoyable year ahead.
