Silver School Games Mark Award
We are delighted to announce that we, Waltham on the Wold Primary School, have achieved the School Games Silver Mark Award for the 2022/23 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Just some of our sporting achievements this year include:
- A fabulous sport’s day for all children.
- Commitment to promoting and providing physical activity across the school day.
- Leicester City FC providing football coaching to all children.
- Gymnastics, boccia and orienteering just some of the sports introduced to children.
- A commitment to providing a varied after-school sport’s provision.
- Key stage 2 children provided with opportunities to take part in competitive sport against other schools.
- Sport’s leaders delivering active playtimes.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to Miss Griffin and Mr Goldspink who have worked hard to create a superb sporting environment for all the children across the school.
We look forward to applying once again in 2024 and this time we are aiming for Gold.
