Gold Award in Sports
We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Gold 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.
Burscough Village Primary School participated in the following sporting competitions:
Football, Cross-Country, Athletics, Tennis, Cricket, Swimming and Dance.
The following extra-curricular clubs were on offer to the children:
Running, Hockey, Football, Dodgeball, Ju-Jitzu, Netball. Gymnastics, Tag-Rugby, Dance, Basketball, Tennis, Multi-Skills, Fencing, Yoga.
67.5% of KS2 children participated in an extra-curricular activity lasting for the whole year.
With a total of young people 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:
Mrs Settle who coordinated the application for the award and led the school to meet the criteria for the award. Miss Stuart who supported Mrs Settle with events and always encouraged children with sport and also with getting competitive!
