School Games Mark - Silver Award Achieved
The PE Team are very proud to announce that Penn Wood have recently achieved the Silver Award in the School Games Mark!
The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows us to evaluate our 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 consider the current academic year.
What are the key criteria?
Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics:
- Participation - how many young people at our 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 our school have with clubs or establishments from the area?
