School Games Mark – Bronze 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. The key criteria are divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following topics:

– Participation – how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?
– Competition – how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?
– Workforce – how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?
– Clubs – how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?

Participating in this process allows us as a school to evaluate our PE provision and assists us in developing an action plan for future progress. On Monday 16th July, Our Lady’s Catholic High School submitted a School Games Mark application and achieved a Bronze award. This is a fantastic achievement and acknowledges the commitment, determination and hard work that has taken place over this academic year.
