We are delighted to announce that St Edward’s Church Primary School, has achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Our sporting achievements this year include:
Entering more sporting events that ever before, including ‘B’ team and SEN events.
100% of our Key Stage 2 have attended at least 1 active internal school club this year.
Staging a Whole School Sports Day(School Games Day) with an opening ceremony parade and dance performance. Sports leaders from Year 5 & 6 have run ‘Personal Challenge’ throughout the year during break/lunchtimes. Intra-class matches/competitions have taken place. 100% of children leaving year 6 can swim 25+ metres with confidence.
With a large total of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!
