Welcome to the Berkshire School Games

 

We are very grateful to our funding partners Greenham Common Trust and Berkshire Community Foundation for their support of the games in 2016 and again in 2017.

Mission, Vision and Outcomes for the Berkshire School Games

 The mission of the Berkshire School Games is:

‘To inspire and enthuse young people in Berkshire through the power of sport and the Olympic and Paralympic Games’

The vision for the Games is:

- To deliver a sustainable educational, sporting and community 2012 legacy across Berkshire

The Local Organising Committee is committed to ensuring that the benefits of the School Games reach far beyond the competition and event days. The sporting events will be focal points for the development work that will take place in schools, clubs and other community settings. The focus will be on developing the skills, confidence and commitment of children and young people through the medium of sport and other areas related to sport and to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The key outcomes for the School Games in Berkshire are that:

 

- Children and young people experience a county-level Olympic-style event and the pride of representing their school and their area

- Children and young people learn through the Values of the Olympic and Paralympic Games and have opportunities for education, personal development and growth

 

- Children and young people with disabilities are fully included in the School Games events and have opportunities to play and lead sport in school and the wider community

- More children and young people make the transition from school sport to sport in community settings, encouraging lifelong participation in sport and a healthy lifestyle

- More young people engage in cultural activities including music, arts and dance both in school and community settings

- A new workforce of future leaders is developed, with young people accessing training and accreditation in sports leadership, coaching and sports-related activities such as journalism, commentating and managing statistics

- New adult volunteers are recruited and involved in delivering the School Games and provide a legacy of involvement inspired by the Olympic and Paralympic Games

 

There are three delivery mechanisms for the Level 3 events in Berkshire:

 

Badged Events


These events are standalone events run during the school day- typically for an afternoon or morning. 

Winter Games 


This is a multisport event day held at Bisham Abbey on 22nd  March 2017.

Summer Games


This is a multisport event day 6th July at Bisham Abbey. There will be an Opening Ceremony and Cultural Village activities run through the day. Teams are expected to attend all day 8.30-4.30 pm

 

FORMAT OF COMPETITONS & REPRESENTATION

We will be using the following format for the 2017 Level 3 School Games events. We will run 3 styles of events:

1. Competitive Competitions – the Schools competing at Level 3 will be the winners of their local level 2 competition. This will be unrestricted so any schools who win at Level 2 will be able to send their team. However, if they are unable to field all teams for which they win at Level 2 team for the correct age group e.g Yr 5/6 for a Yr 5/6 competition they should not send younger children as an alternative and instead should allow the 2nd or 3rd place teams to take their place. Due to safeguarding we should not have younger children playing at this level of competition. Please could schools also consider making early decisions on their availability to avoid the last minute withdrawals in the competition which do not allow SGOs time to find an alternative school to compete

2. Targeted Competitions- these events have ‘eligibility’ criteria for either

a. SEN- these events will include young people from both special schools and mainstream schools.

b. NGB expectation to develop their sport- e.g for Tennis no club or ranked players

c. Broadening participation- sports that we feel provide opportunities for schools to involve different children in representing their school if they so wish. We understand that small schools may not be able to do this.

Schools may represent their area in only one of these competitions per age group e.g. Year 3/4 and Yr 5/6 at each of the two main event days (but any number of badged events). A school may still represent in one of these competitions even if they are taking part in the competitive competitions (but ensure they can field all teams appropriately). The schools involved in these competitions will be the winners of the Level 2 events (where they are in place). If a school wins more than one Level 2 competition they may select which competition they wish to attend. The second then third placed team will then be asked to represent the SSN in the other competition.

 

3.  Participation Events – festivals providing the opportunity for pupils to participate and represent their school at an event in a style that feels less competitive.
