Last year Youth Sport Trust made the decision to suspend School Games Mark for the year 2019/20 due to the COVID pandemic. However, they thought that it was important to acknowledge the excellent work that schools had done both in the first two terms and then during lockdown and therefore two awards were created to recognise schools that had shown this commitment to physical activity and to helping to maintain the physical and mental health of pupils. We are delighted to announce that Fair Oak Junior School has achieved both awards! Further details are given below:
Certificate of recognition for ongoing commitment and achievement in the School Games
This acknowledges your support during the Autumn Term 2019 and Spring Term 2020 and for your School’s engagement in the School Games programme. You have offered a range of opportunities in PE, Sport and Physical Activity for all children in your school and you worked hard towards the Mission and Vision of the School Games. It is also awarded on the grounds that it most likely that you would have achieved Games Mark Platinum if you had continued with the same level of engagement for the rest of the year.
School Games Virtual Certificate
This is to acknowledge the work you did during the summer term. During those very hard times your school continued to engage your children in Physical Education, Sport and Physical Activity and provided excellent virtual opportunities for them to be active and develop physically. This was through creating your own materials and signposting to other programmes.
