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.  The Mark is a retrospective award which validates success over the ongoing academic year.

During the 2015/16 academic year, schools must have:

Participation

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;

Competition

held a School Games Day as the culmination of a year-round competition programme;

registered a School Games Day date on your school dashboard on www.yourschoolgames.com;

a calendar of competition that demonstrates opportunities for young people with SEND to take part in competitions;

a notice board promoting School Games activity.
