Sainsbury's School Games Platinum Award
We are pleased to announce that we have received the Sainsburys School Games Platinum Mark Status for this year. Schools that apply for the Government led programme are assessed on their approach to participation in sport as well as developing competitive sports across the school and the community. Our first Platinum award was achieved due to our Active 30 initiative where we encourage children to be active at school for at least 30 minutes a day.
