School Sport Award

The sportscotland School Sport Award was paused in March 2020, and over the last couple of years it has been reviewed and refreshed with help and feedback from a number of our partners.

Some of the key changes include:

  • New assessment tool website and questions
  • Increased focus on continuous improvement, with a new action planning section on the website
  • Awards can be achieved all year round, no need to wait until the end of the academic year
  • Streamlined Gold application process – we have listened and acted, and reduced the amount of evidence needed to apply

Key dates

  • Apply at any time throughout the year for bronze or silver. If you qualify for gold, there is some further information to submit for review.
  • Gold submissions will be reviewed throughout the year, however if you wish to receive a gold award for academic year 2023/24, please complete your submission by Friday 31 May

Please follow the links below to find out more and begin your assessment. 

If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
