The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.
The School Games are made up of four levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, and at a county/area level:
The Spirit of the Games
These are the six values that form ‘Spirit of the Games’ part of the wider Sporting Spirit programme. Competition creates the ideal context in which to explore personal values and conduct, as through it young people can learn how to handle victory and defeat, how to believe in their abilities and achieve their personal best, and how to respect their opponents and work with their team-mates to achieve success. Denbigh Primary School will communicate these values and involve young people in championing these which will help bring the Spirit of the Games to life. This will ensure that competitive school sport is a rich learning experience for your child, an experience which develops them to be not only the best sportsperson they can be but the best person as well.
