The School Games Award is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country by building on existing practices ion schools to provide more opportunities for those currently not engaged in competitive school sport.
The School Games Mark was launched in June 2012 to reward schools registered for the School Games for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
Harvey Road School has received recognition of the hard work and commitment of staff in ensuring that our children receive inspirational opportunities in sports. This includes:
- the level of fitness our children have and the opportunities we offer that attract less active children into sports
- a wide ranging PE curriculum that includes, athletics (track and field); rugby, football, netball, High 5’s, cricket, cross country running, swimming (we have our own swimming pool) and new sporting initiatives including quick sticks and speed stacks
- a very high number of inter school competitions and intra-school competitions
Partly supported through the DfE Sports premium, this has led to Harvey Road School receiving the Gold Sports Games Award.
