The School Games Mark is now in its 7th year and continues to reward schools and other educational
establishments for their commitment to and development of competition, school sport, physical education
and physical activity. The following criteria will help all institutions assess themselves across bronze, silver
and gold levels of the award and, for those schools that can demonstrate a sustained high level of delivery,
the Platinum award.
School Games Mark is directly linked to a schools engagement in the School Games. This needs to reflect a
broad and balanced offer that actively encourages those young people that aren’t currently engaged or who
are engaged less often. This isn’t about provision for a small cohort of young people but needs to consider
ALL the school’s population.
This year, Sandhills will be aiming to engage and encourage all the school population in challenging themselves in Sport and PE. We aim to provide access for all in competition, school sport, PE and all physical activity. We will be using the School Games to help us in that provision and hopefully attain School Games certification at the end of the year. In the meantime we shall enjoy our sport and physical activity and CHALLENGE OURSELVES!!.
