School Games Mark

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.

The online application window for 2017/18 will be open from Wednesday 09 May until Friday 14 September. All registered schools are able to apply for the Mark.

Why Should our School Apply?

  • You can proudly display your certificate, pennant and plaque (Gold level only) at your school
  • You can use it as a development tool to aid the PE teacher or Headteacher as your school
