School Games Platinum Award

13th September 2019

We are delighted to announce that we, Shinfield St. Mary’s C of E Junior School, have achieved the School Games Platinum Mark Award for the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic year. This award can only be applied for after being awarded four Gold Mark Awards in previous years and it stands for two academic years.

 

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

 

With a total of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.

 

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.

 

We look forward to applying once again in 2021!
