What is the Sainsbury's School Games Mark?

The Sainsbury's School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark.

All registered schools are able to apply for the Mark. The application window is not yet confirmed for 2014/15 but is likely to open in the summer term. Further information is available via the school dashboard, the customised content portal for all schools logged in to the website.

Why should our school apply?

- OfSTED use the Mark award as part of their inspection framework

- You can proudly display your certificate and pennant at your school

- You can use it as a development tool to aid the PE teacher or Headteacher as your school

- You can add the logo to letterheads and email signatures to show your outstanding commitment to school sport.
