School Games Mark
We are delighted to announce that we, Muscliff Primary School, have achieved the School Games Platinum Mark Award.
The School Games Mark is an award scheme launched to reward and recognise school's engagement in the School Games and to celebrate keeping young people active. By receiving the highest award, we are among the top schools in the country for the opportunities we provide children in sport and physical activity. We are very proud to have received this award for the first time and hope it can be used as a springboard to develop children's sporting opportunities further!
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas linked to the five School Games outcomes along with providing a case study report on a specific area. We chose to Demonstrate how we have embedded positive experiences of competition into our offer and how this has made a difference to our uptake through the introduction of inter-house competitions. You can read the case study report by clicking on the PDF below.
Our other physical activity and school sport achievements this year include:
- Making improvements to our PE curriculum to include leadership aspects.
- Introducing regular Inter-House competitions.
- Developing our Sports Leaders programme.
- Offering 28 different extra-curricular sporting clubs.
- Participating in a range of inclusive events across BCP.
- Competing with the top schools in Bournemouth for netball and athletics.
We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our events possible. We are committed to using the School Games to try and engage those young people who haven't previously been active or represented our school and to try and ensure that all our students have a positive experience and want to try out new activities beyond school too in our community. We believe in the power of physical activity and school sport as a school and give opportunities to those young people that need it most either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer.
