The School Games aims to provide every child with a positive experience in an environment where the young person’s motivation, competence and confidence are at the centre of the competition.
The School Games, which is funded by Sport England National Lottery funding and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, is a government led programme designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people.
SGOs are funded by the Department of Health and Social Care and the National Lottery through Sport England to deliver the School Games programme for three days a week. They are predominantly hosted by schools to whom the funding is paid. Outside of this, many SGOs also work as teachers, within School Sport Partnerships or in other roles in sport and schools.
This network currently services in excess of 18,800 registered schools who compete across School Games' competitions.
This is open and FREE TO ACCESS for all primary schools (pupils in KS2 only), secondary schools, special schools, further education establishments and alternative provision settings.
SHAPE Learning Partnership can support ALL schools in Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire through their two School Games Organisers India Hollingworth (North East Derbyshire) and Paul Ryan (Chesterfield).
