A record number of 37 South Cambs Schools have recently secured a School Games Award for 2016-17 in recognition of their commitment to the development of Physical Education, school sport and competition across their school and into the community.
Partnership Manager, Claire McDonnell said, “I am delighted with the number of schools gaining an award this year. It really is great to see local schools being recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to provide the very best opportunities for their pupils.”
71% of South Cambs schools have achieved an award with 6 schools awarded a School games Mark for the first time and 13 schools achieving Gold. Schools achieving the Gold award demonstrate a whole school approach to PE and sport, they have the wholehearted support from their headteacher and provide opportunities for all pupils at all levels. As well as this they are a community hub for sport, encouraging involvement from parents and community groups.”
The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme where schools can gain a bronze, silver or gold level award. The following schools in South Cambs have achieved an award in 2017 and will be presented with their certificates and pennants in the coming weeks, congratulations to all of them on their hard work and excellent provision.
