School Games Platinum Award

Lawford Mead has been awarded the School Games Platinum award for our PE and sports provision

The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school’s engagement (provision and uptake) in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

If a school has previously achieved four consecutive gold awards and have met the standard for this year’s gold award, then they will be eligible to apply for platinum. Through the platinum award, we want to learn where schools are in their engagement with the evolution of the School Games. We want to understand what it takes to be a fully engaged and committed school so that we can help others on their journey of change. As a result, we will look for some narrative from these schools to demonstrate the impact and meaningful difference they are making. This will be in the form of a case study submitted alongside their application. All applications which we receive will also be entered into our newly revamped Impact Awards where schools will be in with a chance of gaining further recognition nationally.

We did it! We earned the Platinum School Games Award. Thank you to everyone who helped us achieve this award.
