Stevenage Sporting Futures - Sports Mark

School Games Mark

Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, Youth Sports Trust have taken the decision to suspend all School Games Mark applications for 19/20. This means that no new schools will be able to apply and schools who were successfully awarded a mark (Bronze, Silver, Gold) will now hold these for a further year.

Our 2 Platinum schools, who were not required to re apply this year, will now need to re apply in 21-22.


The School Games Mark is now in its 9th year and continues to reward schools and other educational
establishments for their commitment to and development of competition, school sport, physical education
and physical activity. The following criteria will help all institutions assess themselves across bronze, silver
and gold levels of the award and, for those schools that can demonstrate a sustained high level of delivery,
the Platinum award.

School Games Mark is directly linked to a schools engagement in the School Games. This needs to reflect a
broad and balanced offer that actively encourages those young people that aren’t currently engaged or who
are engaged less often. This isn’t about provision for a small cohort of young people but needs to consider
ALL the school’s population.
