What is the School Games?

The School Games inspires young people to be physically active through positive experiences of daily activity and competition.

The School Games consists of four unique types of competition:

1. Intra-School Competition

2. Local Inter-School Competition

3. County Final

4. School Games National Finals


What is the vision?

The School Games will continue to make a clear and meaningful difference to the lives of even more children and young people.

What is the mission?

Putting physical activity and competitive sport at the heart of schools and providing more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.

The Schools Games Toolkit

The toolkit is designed to support teachers of all children to carefully consider their part in reducing the risk of a negative experience in sports competitions. It is intended to help you to select, prepare and support more young people to have a positive experience of competition.
We strongly encourage all schools and teachers across Essex to sign up to the national School Games website which is full of useful resources (www.yourschoolgames.com)
