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 in England are able to assess themselves across Bronze, Silver and Gold levels of the Mark. New for 2016-2017 was the introduction of the Platinum Mark which was awarded to schools who have achieved the School Games Mark Gold for the past five consecutive years. In our area, Overleigh St Mary's CE and Waverton Primary Schools were the first schools to achieve this status, with Waverton Primary School retaining this status in 2018-2019!.

All registered schools are able to apply for the Mark, the next application window will open Summer 2020. To help with the application process, it helps to build up a file at the beginning of the year to show evidence of what you have done in your school. If you need assistance with the planning for the award, please contact your School Games Organiser. 

The School Games Mark criteria for 2019-2020 can be found on the link below:


The guidance document for schools is also helpful.


Further information is available via the School Games dashboard, the customised content portal for all schools logged in to the website. (
