School Games Mark 2021-22 Criteria

Following a period of consultation, the School Games team have decided they will be reinstating the award levels of Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum but they have done this giving full consideration to not adding more pressure to already hard-pressed schools. You can view the criteria by clicking above.

To allow sufficient time for schools to understand the revised questions and collate data, the application window will be opening on Wednesday 04 May 2022, closing on Wednesday 27 July 2022.

The number of questions has been simplified for this year, which will be confined to Yes/No answers where possible. A reminder that the School Games Mark does not include any KS1 provision.

The School Games Mark will once again be completed on the Your School Games website:

  1. Go to

  3. Your school’s name should appear on a drop-down menu, click your school, making sure it is your school’s postcode.
  4. This will open your school page. Scroll down to ‘Is this your school?’ and click ‘register as a new member of staff’.
  5. Fill in your details and accept the terms and conditions.
  6. Your account will then be accepted by the Stevenage Sporting Futures Team.

The framework looks very different to what it has done in previous years. Should schools require any support to complete their School Games Mark, please contact Regan:




School Games Framework 2020-21

The School Games Framework is due to change but is now open.

The School Games Mark Framework is a development tool that schools can use to self-review their engagement and provision. The change of format will aim to celebrate the role that the School Games can play in your schools COVID-19 recovery curriculum and to consider which young people need sustained targeted interventions and how your SGO can support you with this. It will allow for further consideration and opportunity to reflect at the end of the year to see what progress you have made and what your further areas for development are.

The School Games Mark Framework remains open to all schools and educational establishments in both the state and private sectors with Key Stage 2 and above young people who are engaged with their School Games Organisers. Schools will be able to access this via the school’s dashboard on the School Games website Here you  will find the link complete the initial questions. The resulting action plan can then be shared both within your school and with your local SGO (aka the Stevenage Sporting Futures Team). As with previous year, schools must also complete the Inclusive Health Check to go alongside the framework and this again can be found on the dashboard.

Should Partner Schools require any support to complete their initial framework, please contact Regan:
