Schools in the United Kingdom have the opportunity to apply for a School Games Mark Award on an annual basis to celebrate the hard work and dedication that takes place throughout the year. The School Games Mark criteria evaluates schools in regards to competition, wider roles in school sport, the PE curriculum and the targeting of inactive or particular groups of pupils across a school.
We have already received the criteria for this academic year and schools are on their way to achieving their target already for this year.
For the 2016/2017 Academic year our schools achieved the following:
Gold- Abbeyfield Primary Academy, Beck Primary School, Hartley Brook Academy, High Green Primary School, Malin Bridge Primary School, Marlcliffe Primary School, Nether Green Junior School, Pye Bank CE Primary School, Rivelin Primary School, Sacred Heart School, St Catherine’s Catholic Academy, St Mary’s Catholic Academy, St Mary’s CE Primary Academy
