Sainsburys School Games Quality Mark

 
Over this academic year, I’m sure your children have enjoyed participating and competing in various sports and small games, as well as learning within their two hours of PE per week. There is now a huge focus on PE and Sport in all schools, not just to encourage healthy active lifestyles, but also to develop the children’s social and emotional enjoyment, which has been shown to link to success within other areas of the curriculum.

 

This year, again, primary schools have received funding called Sport Premium, which is ring-fenced and can only be used to specifically develop Physical Education (PE), sport and physical activity in school. After an evaluation, schools have then been awarded a Bronze, Silver or Gold award or nothing at all within the Sainsbury’s School Games Quality Mark. 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. 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 again this year.

 

Following our recent application, Primrose Lane is very proud to announce that we achieved the Gold for the Sainsburys School Games Quality Mark, maintaining our award from last year, which is a fantastic achievement! We would like to congratulate all staff and children for their efforts and cooperation within PE and Sport and hope it continues to progress further. Congratulations have also been received from SSCos Jon Lynsky from Boston Spa High School and Julie Smyth from Wetherby High School, as well as Partnership Development Manager Shaun Mulhern.

 

If you have any questions or suggestions of ways of further developing the PE and Sport here at Primrose Lane, please come and see Mr Jackson (PE and Sport Coordinator).
