School Games Award

Green Lanes has worked hard to achieve the Bronze School Games Mark Award over the year 2015/16. Systems were put in place to track children’s involvement in extra curricular sporting activities, identifying that 83% of KS2 were involved in additional sport. These sports included mixed and single sex activities, both competitive and friendly events, at intra level (within school) and inter level (competing against other schools). The sports team has fed back to the school community about recent sporting events and results, via the school sports board, newsletter and website. Children have been given increasing opportunities to take part in a range of sports, some of which they have never tried before. The Award has also guided us to further improve sporting opportunities and develop stronger links with clubs and coaches. Therefore, we now provide clubs for Lacrosse and Basketball, led by local coaches, and have also started a girls’ football team, to increase girls’ participation in football. We have also introduced a Year 3 & 4 Netball Club, to embed the foundations of netball, prior to participating in the Year 5 & 6 league. The school has also offered specific support to talented young sports pupils, to develop their sporting potential.

Furthermore, sports leaders have been implemented to lead and inspire younger pupils to participate in school. We aim for their presence and impact in the school to increase in the coming year, and hope to achieve the Award again in 2016/17.kite-mark
