School Games Mark

What is the 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. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels alongside their local School Games Organiser.

Why should our school apply?

 OFSTED can use the Mark award as part of their inspection framework - You can proudly display your certificate, pennant and plaque (Gold level only) at your school

 You can use it as a development tool to aid the PE Teacher or Head Teacher at your school

 You can add the logo to letterheads and email signatures to show your outstanding commitment to school sport

When do I apply?

The window for applications will open on Wednesday 01 June 2016 and will close on Wednesday 28 September.

What kind of activities do we need to do to be eligible?

Obviously there is a lot more required to obtain a Gold Mark compared to the Bronze but as a minimum you must have:

 A system in place to track young people’s participation in the School Games

 Opportunities that attract less active young people to participate in physical activity
