Thanks to pupils from Ormiston Horizon Academy in Stoke-on-Trent who became our event reporters for the day. Take a look at their reports below....
The School Games is a key Government priority for ‘realising a meaningful sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games’. With support from three Government Departments (Department of Culture, Media and Sport, Department of Health and the Department for Education) and funding from Sport England through the National Lottery, the School Games is a new approach to competitive school sport designed to motivate and enthuse all young people.
A year-round sporting calendar is created in each sub-region that is specifically designed to get young people competing at intra-school and inter-school levels, culminating in local, regional and national events. This is supported by the network of School Games Organisers.
The School Games is a celebration of competitive sport for pupils that provides opportunities for all young people regardless of their experience, talent or ability.
County School Games
Lottery Funding to run the County School Games is provided by Sport England. The County event is managed by a Local Organising Committee (LOC) consisting as a minimum of:
- state and independent schools (at Headteacher level, including a Headteacher as Chair)
- the County Sport Partnership (Sport Across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent in our area)
- local government
- young people
- NGB and other local sports providers
- local disability sport
The Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Local Organising Committee were established and have met regularly since September 2011.
