School Games Award

School Games Mark Update June 2020

You may recall I explained that the School Games Mark has been paused for this year meaning that Hipsburn retained the gold award we gained last year.

Since then we, like many schools, have said that we would like the work we have done (and continue to do virtually) this year to be recognised. In response to this, Youth Sport Trust introduced two one-off awards. There are no Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels to these. One is an award for schools which have committed to the development of PE and school sport during the autumn and spring terms and the other is an award for schools which have continued this work virtually this term.

Northumberland School Games Organisers produced a ‘criteria’ which was applied to all schools across the county in awarding these School Games Marks.

I am delighted to announce that we have gained  both awards!

Thank you for all your support!
