School Games Gold Award 2021-2022
We are delighted to announce that we, Chaucer Primary School, have achieved the School Games Gold Award for the 2021/22 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school’s engagement (provision and uptake) in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our events possible. We are committed to using the School Games to try and engage those young people who haven’t previously been active or represented our school and to try and ensure that all our students have a positive experience and also want to try out new activities beyond school in our community. Chaucer believe in the power of physical activity and school sport and give opportunities to those young people that need it most, either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas linked to the five School Games outcomes and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded for the third consecutive year.
Thank you to all staff involved, without your hard work and dedication this would not have been possible.
