After applying for the 2018/19 School Games Mark Award, Lakenham Primary School 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, Bluebell Primary have given the opportunity for pupils to participate in a minimum of 4 intra-sport competitions, 3 inter-sport competitions and provided all students with two hours of Physical Education, school sport and physical activity per week.
Congratulations to Lakenham Primary on this achievement.
