12 Dec The School Games Mark Award
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.
School Games registered schools are eligible to apply once a year during an application window, which traditionally takes place during the summer term, and are graded against set criteria. The School Games Mark is a retrospective award and all answers submitted should consider the current academic year.
In Havering a large number of primary and secondary schools apply each year and we are at the point where more and more schools are achieving GOLD. These schools are rewarded with a wooden plaque. We took time at our recent Sportshall athletics events to celebrate the awards with our primary schools and pictured here are representatives from Whybridge Junior, Clockhouse Primary, Oakfields Montessori, Gidea Park Primary, Benhurst Primary, Upminster Junior, Gidea Park College, Scotts Primary, Newtons Primary and Parsonage Farm Primary receiving their GOLD awards. Ardleigh Green Junior are pictured receiving their PLATINUM award as a result of having achieved GOLD for 4 consecutive years. Schools also achieving the GOLD award but not present at the event are Towers Junior School and Engayne Primary.
