We are delighted to announce that Highfield Junior and Infant School have been awarded the Silver School Games Mark Award. This is an exceptional achievement for Highfield School and is testament to the continued hard work from the department. We look forward to welcoming a new academic year where we will continue to prioritise providing these opportunities for our children.
This academic year 184 of our key stage two children have been engaged in weekly out of school hours learning. We have provided 440 places for children in 62 sporting competitions and had 129 children officiating and leading sporting events.
The School Games Mark Award has been running since 2012 and recognises schools for their commitment to school sport. The criteria to be awarded the Mark include providing children with 2 hours P.E per week, engaging pupils in competitive school sport and providing extra-curricular opportunities. With a large intake of pupils across our Trust the threshold to meet the criteria is exceptionally challenging.
