The School Games is continuing to have a huge impact on P.E. and sport in our school. We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the School Games Platinum Kitemark for the second time and therefore for the fourth and fifth year in succession. This is the highest status of Kitemark that can be awarded. The Platinum Award was launched in 2017 as an extension of the School Games Mark to reward schools who have maintained consistently high standards with and enthusiasm for their school sport provision. As part of the extended application the eligible candidates, who had achieved five successive gold awards or were likely to receive the gold award for a fifth consecutive year, were asked to submit a detailed case study along with a supporting paragraph from their School Games Organiser (SGO). To achieve the gold award a school must meet a high-level set of criteria, which includes engaging a high percentage of young people in both curricular and extracurricular activities, participating in a minimum number of competitions across different sports, and reaching out to target groups including young leaders, volunteers, and those previously identified as the school’s least-active pupils. To do this for five successive years is very impressive. This is an incredible achievement and we initially held the Platinum Kitemark for a period of two years, extended for a third year due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), until being required to apply again in the summer of 2022. We successfully reapplied in the Summer of 2022 and have been reaccredited with the Platinum kitemark. Congratulations to everyone who has contributed to our success with the School Games - it is an honour to be recognised in this way.
