We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Bronze Mark Award for the 2017/18 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.
Our sporting achievements this year include:
Increasing participation in Extra Curricular Sports
All children taking part in the Go run for fun at Eaton Park
Children taking part in competitions and festivals in a range of different sports
Increasing our participation in competitive sport and festivals to 100% of children
Taking part in the sports partnership Dance Show at Open
4 children competing in the School Games County Cross Country finals
Increasing participation in lunchtime and before school sport
Giving children the chance to make positive changes to their attitudes towards physical activity
With a total of 110 young people from Wensum competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
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:
The children who are always honest, kind and respectful when they represent our school in sport.
All of the staff that allow our children to access a range of sports and activities.
Every parent who comes to support and help with the activities that we provide our children.
The staff in the office who help to coordinate letters, transport and lunches.
Anyone who has helped on any of our sporting activities this year.
Without all of your support it would not have been possible to achieve all that we have this year.
We look forward to next year and moving on to achieving greater things with sport at Wensum Junior School!
