After applying for the 2018/19 School Games Mark Award, Valley Primary Academy have successfully achieved the Bronze 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.
Each application is divided into four sets of questions;
- 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?
Based on the answers given, schools are graded from Bronze to Gold based upon their engagement across the year. By achieving the Bronze Award, Valley Primary are providing opportunities to pupils who are traditionally less active and have engaged pupils in at least 3 intra-sport and two inter-sport competitions.
Congratulations to Valley Primary Academy on this achievement.
