Your School Games
Your School Games is a programme which puts physical activity and school sport at the heart of schools, providing young people with the opportunity to learn through competition to achieve their personal best.
To celebrate the ongoing investment into the School Games, in July 2023 YSG committed to three School Games pledges through to 2025:
- Tackle inequalities to increase participation of schools from the most underserved communities
- Ensure physical literacy and positive experiences are created and promoted for children and young people
- Embed youth engagement to enhance the principle of ‘by young people, for young people’.
These pledges aim to address the national priorities of tackling inequalities, youth engagement, and physical literacy through the School Games.
As part of the You School Games initiative, The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.
For academic year 2022/2023 Holy Trinity received GOLD for their efforts and achievements in sport.
