Norfolk School Games - Autumn Term 2021

SEPTEMBER  13TH - 2021

The Norfolk School Games is part of the national School Games which is a government led programme designed to inspire young people to be physically active for life through positive experiences of daily physical activity and competition.

The Games is organised in Norfolk by an operational group made up of representatives from Active Norfolk and the School Games Organisers (SGO's) from the 8 School Sport Partnerships in the county. The group is overseen by a strategy group which comprises of stakeholders including: Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Special Schools and the Youth Sport Trust. The School Games is funded by Sport England National Lottery funding and is free for all schools in Norfolk to take part in.

The Games involves a variety of local and county wide activities for young people of all ages and abilities to take part in. The Games supports the wider development of young people, including;

Physical Development: Being active for at least 60 minutes a day supports young people to have immediate and long-term health benefits.

Personal Development: The School Games has a positive impact on young people's personal development, such as developing their leadership skills and resilience.

Emotional Development: The School Games improves young people's self-esteem, reduces stress, supports their mental wellbeing and builds their resilience.

Social Development: The School Games provides a sense of belonging, enabling young people to develop their teamwork, communication, empathy and respect for others.

All local activities will be designed around the following activity themes. These will help schools understand the format of each activity and which pupils to select to participate.

ENGAGE: These are non-competitive and target pupils who would benefit from being more physically active, particularly those whose physical activity levels have been most negatively impacted by COVID-19. 

DEVELOP: These are for pupils who enjoy friendly competition but don’t want to solely focus on winning and losing, instead they focus on supporting a pupils wider development.

COMPETE: These are for pupils who are competitive in nature and enjoy performing and competing against others.

In addition to the local offer, Active Norfolk, in collaboration with the SGO network will provide a variety of opportunities that are available to all schools across the county.
