West Dorset SGO Area

Welcome to West Dorset School Games page. My name is Nadia Dailey and I have been the School Games Organiser for the area since 2015. I cover all schools across Dorchester, Weymouth & Portland, Bridport, Beaminster and Lyme Regis. I feel very lucky to have the job that I do, and I am extremely passionate about the values we promote.

 

To put the School Games into context within the County here are our mission and vision statements

Vision: For all young people in Dorset to have the opportunity to enjoy and experience the benefits of taking part in competitive school sport.

Mission: To provide a programme of events that are age appropriate, positive and rewarding which contribute towards young people living healthy, happy and active lives.

At the current time our focus has changed due to the times we find ourselves in. Within Dorset as a School Games team we are working together to help every one stay active at home with their families. We hope we can give you some ideas to contribute towards your recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day. 

There are lots of resources, fun games and challenges available for things to do at home  (please see attached) .

School Games Active Championships

This  is a national activity campaign to help young people across the UK to #StayInWorkOut using the video-based platform powered by TopYa!. New challenges will be available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to engage with.  To find out more click here 

NGB Activities

National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) have worked alongside the School Games to build and develop a series of sport formats for intra and inter-school competition. These formats aim to encourage all young people to participate and are based on supporting young people to build and extend their skills and confidence.  For more information please click here
