School Games High Quality Competition Tool

The School Games team would like to invite all School Games registered schools to complete a new online tool which will introduce teachers to the five principles of high quality competition.

Our vision is that by 2020 the School Games will be continuing to make a clear and meaningful difference to the lives of even more children and young people. For this to be achieved we need to ensure that we are providing competitive opportunities for all children and young people and not just a few. To support this, we believe there are five principles of competition that if followed can ensure all young people are provided with these opportunities.

Teachers play an important role in facilitating this provision and we have created an online learning tool which will support teachers in implementing these principles. The online tool will take teachers through the principles of competition, giving them the opportunity to reflect on their current practice, and read case studies which will provide examples of how the principles have already been implemented across the county. 

It will also look at what motivates children and young people and help teachers understand the environments that need to be created to ensure that the young person’s motivation, competence and confidence are central to the competition.

All teachers can access the tool now by clicking here or by scrolling down to the bottom of your main dashboard. And, as an extra incentive to get involved, we're offering a number of prizes to schools who utilise the tool. All schools who complete the training will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Youth Sport Direct voucher - of which we have 50 to giveaway - whilst the first School Games Organiser to have 50% of their schools completed will win an Athlete Mentor visit for their area.
