The award will help ensure that physical education and school sport is at the heart of each school and its wider community. They will also encourage schools to ensure there are opportunities for all children and young people to engage, participate and reach their potential in this area.
The self-assessment tool will encourage self reflection and continuous improvement to help schools make improvements to their physical education and sport offer.
There are three main reasons why a school would use the tool:
- To provide schools with a benchmark towards achieving a Bronze, Silver or Gold School Sport Award
- To identify areas for improvement
- To identify if their school meets the minimum criteria to apply for a gold School Sport Award to gain national recognition for their physical education and school sport provision.
