We are delighted to announce that we, West Tytherley Primary School, have achieved the School Games SILVER Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year. Previously, we have received the Bronze Mark
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.
Our sporting achievements this year include:
- Third in Girls Football
- Joint second in Rounders
- Third in Tri-Golf
With a number 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 and especially their continued display of teamwork and encouragements.
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. We have invested in a new PE scheme, Real PE, which has also helped the children to develop skills required to self-assess their own performance and help assess the performances of others through discussions.
A special thanks to all the parents who have helped transporting the children to the different locations – participating in the events would not have been possible otherwise.
We look forward to applying once again in 2020; we are going to be aiming for GOLD!
