School Games Platinum Award for Isaac Newton School!

CIT - Community Inclusive Trust. Where learning comes first

Isaac Newton School are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Platinum Mark Award for a second time.

The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school’s engagement (provision and uptake) in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

Our physical activity and school sport achievements this year include:

  • 780 participations in School Games events
  • 19 inter-school events attended
  • 12 intra-school events held in school this year
  • 402 participations in after school clubs

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our events possible.  We are committed to using the School Games to try and engage those young people who haven’t previously been active or represented our school and to try and ensure that all our students have a positive experience and want to try out new activities beyond school too in our community.  We believe in the power of physical activity and school sport as a school and give opportunities to those young people that need it most either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas linked to the five School Games outcomes and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.

Ellie Atter, PE Lead at Isaac Newton School, commented:

“At Isaac Newton we place a high emphasis on physical activity and school sport. We work hard to provide opportunities for all children to become more physically active through curriculum time, lunch and after school clubs. We encourage children to become leaders, to take part in festivals and sporting competitions and, as such, have had great success over recent years. Achieving the Platinum Award for the second time is fantastic, a real team effort. I couldn’t be more proud of the children at Isaac Newton and the dedicated PE staff I have the privilege to work with every day.”
