School Games Mark
The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.
Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics…
- Participation – how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?
- Competition – how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?
- Workforce – how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?
- Clubs – how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?
I am delighted to announce that Southill Primary School have come out as GOLD!!
This is an extremely difficult award to achieve. However due to our participation in sporting activities before, during and after school, our involvement with local competitions, the amount of children taking part and the clubs that we offer, we have been successful in achieving the Gold School Games Mark in recognition of our hard work.
A huge well done to everybody in the Southill community. Without your support, this would have not been possible!
