A message from the SGO


60% of children and young people are still not doing the recommended daily activity levels, and to counteract this disappointing statistic, the SGO role is currently undergoing a complete overhaul. School Games and LYG has shifted the focus away from elite pathway events and SGOs are now encouraged to plan a bespoke borough offer based on local needs.

We will continue to offer competitive opportunities, but look for gaps in current provision rather than duplicate events. The more popular events which offer a competitive element to a wide range of abilities will remain, but we will also be looking to diversify the offer with less traditional sports and activities. The main emphasis is to try and give as many pupils as possible the opportunity to try out different sports and activities, in order to motivate and inspire them to remain active into adulthood. Will will also look to target underactive groups such as SEND, BAME, girls, low socio - economic groups and transition groups (Y3 & Y7/8).

In order to plan a bespoke offer for Sutton going forward, it is very important that we have feedback from all our schools in order to try and meet local needs. Therefore, have your say and complete the Google questionnaire that was sent out recently.
