The School Games

Greenway Primary and Nursery School are proud to provide our children sporting opportunities through the School Games.

The School Games is a National government led initiative that every school in the country has access to. It is funded by Sport England National Lottery programme and delivered by The Youth Sport Trust.

In Hertfordshire, the School Games programme is delivered by 12 School Games Organisers (SGO’s) all working to support a local and county offer of opportunity for all pupils aged 7-16. Our Local SGO is Clare McCawley, who runs Dacorum School Sports Network (DSSN). Most of the sporting opportunities we offer in addition to the PE curriculum are organised by The School Games, our local SGO or DSSN.

The School Games mission is to put physical activity and competitive sport at the heart of schools and provide more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.

Sport offers opportunities for everybody. Hertfordshire run a wide variety of activities to support every child whether it be through Archery or Wheelchair basketball.

School Games in Hertfordshire Events

Hertfordshire School Games events will take place under one of the sections of the pyramid (below) to ensure all young people are able to access competitions at the right level to ensure maximum enjoyment and a positive experience.

All events will be underpinned by the School Games values and allow opportunities for young people to develop and enhance their knowledge, understanding and apply their leadership skills.

The School Games is a fun and enjoyable way of engaging all young people through school sport – either as a competitor, young leader, official or as part of a media team, focusing on blogging and promoting sport. Hertfordshire has a broad and varied leadership programme to support all pupils.
