School Games Mark

The 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. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.  Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver, gold and platinum levels of the Mark.

School Games registered schools are eligible to apply once a year during an application window, usually the summer term, and are graded against set criteria. The School Games Mark is a retrospective award and all answers submitted should consider the current full academic year.  Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics…

  • Participation – how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?
  • Competition – how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?
  • Workforce – how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?
  • Clubs – how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?
