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 School Games aims to provide every child with a positive experience in an environment where the young person's motivation, competence and confidence are at the centre of the competition.

The toolkit is designed to support teachers of all children (i.e. primary, secondary, special and alternative provision settings) 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.
