Stevenage Sporting Futures - Sports Mark

School Games Framework

Youth Sports Trust took the decision to suspend all School Games Mark applications for 19/20, meaning schools continued to hold the award level that had received in 18/19 and in addition, they received a recognition certificate of continued commitment to the School Games

Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, it is impossible to re-launch the mark in its usual format therefore Youth Sports Trust will be relaunching with the new 20/21 School Games framework at the end of November.

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 www.yourschoolgames.com . 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 Louise.
