The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport. The Games were designed to build on the magic of London 2012 to enable every school, and child, to participate in competitive sport, including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters. There are four levels of competition:
Intra-school (Level 1) - sporting competition for children in school through intra-school competition. For many young people sporting competition is first experienced through house teams or in PE lessons. Level 1 of the School Games will build on a school’s existing work to offer pupils a year-round programme of regular intra-school competition in a number of sports that culminate in a School Games Day: the ultimate school sports day!
Inter-school (Level 2) - individuals and teams from Years 3 to 6 are selected to represent their school in local inter-school competitions, some of which will be leagues. Schools will have the flexibility to decide which sports to enter but are encouraged to involve as many pupils as possible by creating breadth in the sports they offer, and depth through the creation of additional teams.
Inter-school (Level 3) - can be run as developmental competitions or festival events to meet the needs of a local area. Pathway Competitions,these are inter school competitions where the winners feed into the County Final. These competitions must adhere to the NGB Priority formats, and the target audience should be defined by the LOC to ensure that when participants reach the County Final they are competing against those of a similar experience/ability.
These are an inter-school occasion aimed at year 3 and 4 pupils which includes a rotation of skill based activities which challenge young people to achieve their personal best e.g. jumping, throwing and other various skills.
