The Sainsbury’s School Games Mark application window is now open!

The School Games Mark is a fantastic way for schools  to have all of the hard work they are putting into PE & school sport recognised.  We would like to encourage as many of our South Leicestershire schools as possible to achieve the Mark this year.  The application window for 2014/15 is open until Wednesday 30 September.

What is the School Games Mark?

The Sainsbury’s 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. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark.

All registered schools are able to apply for the Mark. Further information is available via the school dashboard, the customised content portal for all schools logged in to the website.
