Overview of the School Games
From September 2011 a new programme was introduced across the country, the School Games. This programme is a celebration of competitive sport that will involve all young people from year 3-13 of all abilities and backgrounds. With the support from the School Sport Partnership young people are given the opportunity to participate in a year round sporting calendar with over 30 sports available, specifically designed to get children competing at intra-school and inter school levels and culminating in local, regional and national events.
The School Games is made up of 4 levels of competition:
Level 1: Intra-school competition, culminating in a School Games day
Level 2: Regular inter-school competition between schools at a local level – including partnership competitions
Level 3: Annual county/area culmination of inter-school competitions – School Games Festivals
Level 4: National multi-sport event
