Silver Your School Games Mark 2015-2016
Leigh School is proud to announce that we have achieved the Silver School Games Mark for 2015/2016.
What is the School Games Mark?
The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools can apply for Bronze, Silver or Gold status.
Why should our school apply?
OfSTED can use the Mark award as part of their inspection framework, it is a fantastic way to show our sporting achievements for the previous year.
The School Games provide children with the opportunity to lead, manage and officiate activities.
Leigh Trust Sports Day (2015/16)
For the first time since we have become a trust, we held our first 'Trust Sports Day' at Saltley School in July '2016. The event was planned, managed and organised by the PE department across all three trust schools.
The weather was sunny and the day consisted of children from year 3 - 6 participating in a wide variety of track and field events. Parents were cheering on the side line, whilst children were chanting for their school and the atmosphere was very excitable and competitive. A scoring system was in place for children that placed first,second and third at the end of their race and some children beat their personal best. Playmakers from Leigh School supported and lead some of the races/events and it was identified by some younger pupils, that they were inspired by their talents when performing the demonstrations. What a fantastic day this was !!!
Congratulations to 'Alston' for achieving first place on the day, followed by Leigh and then Wyndcliffe. The scores were very close and we all can't wait to do it again next year.
