Previously there was no vehicle by which to officially recognise excellence in delivery of physical activity, P.E and school sport in Key Stage 1. We are therefore proud to offer schools the opportunity to apply for an Active Essex Key Stage 1 Award. 

Complementing the Youth Sports Trust School Games Mark, this is a rolling application and schools can apply for the Active Essex Key Stage 1 Award at any time of year. There are two panel review periods, Autumn and Summer half term, once approved this award will be valid for 2 years. Your school will receive a framed certificate and digital logo.

Applications will be assessed by a panel assembled by Chelmsford Schools Sport Partnership and Active Essex, which may include a verification visit by a relevant member.

Schools can apply for an Active Essex Key Stage 1 Award at any time of the year. This Award will be valid for 2 years.

Applications for 2022-23 award should reflect provision in place for 2021-22 and current practice.

The next deadline for applications is 4th November 2022
