A total of 19 Cambridge Schools secured a School Games Award for 2019 in recognition of their commitment to the development of Physical Education, school sport and competition across their school and into the community.
Partnership Manager, Cath Heron said, “We are extremely proud of all our award winners for the passion which they have shown towards the School Games and their dedication to providing opportunities for all young people to take part in physical activity and school sport.
Its great to see local schools being recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to provide the very best opportunities for their pupils. With over 3,000 young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our schools for their dedication to all aspects of school sport and we would like to thank all of the young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible
62% of Cambridge schools have achieved an award with some achieving it for the first time.
7 schools gained a silver award. 11 schools achieved Gold with many retaining this from previous years. Schools achieving the Gold award demonstrate a whole school approach to PE and sport, they have the wholehearted support from their headteacher and provide opportunities for all pupils at all levels. As well as this they are a community hub for sport, encouraging involvement from parents and community groups.
The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme where schools can gain a bronze, silver, gold or platinum level award. The following schools in Cambridge have achieved an award in 2019 and will be presented with their certificates and awards in the coming weeks, congratulations to all of them on their hard work and excellent provision.
