School Games Gold Mark Award for school

by Henry James (June 2022)

STAFF and pupils at St Thomas the Martyr CE Primary in Skelmersdale have achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2021/22 academic year.

The School Games Mark Award is a government-led scheme launched in 2012, run by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school's engagement in the School Games against a national benchmark, and to celebrate keeping young people active.

Headteacher, Carl Roscoe, said: “Our physical activity and school sport achievements this year has resulted in some of our Year 4 children successfully making it to the School Games in Blackpool on July 5.

“The school are extremely proud of their pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport.

“We are also committed to using the School Games to try and engage those young people who haven’t previously been active or represented our school and to try and ensure that all our students have a positive experience and want to try out new activities beyond school in our community.”
