What is the 'School Games?'

School Games Values
The School Games Values are integral for young people to understand the importance of all areas of sport, not just the competitive side. We have decided as a school to make these values an important part of our whole curriculum. They're in every classroom and children are awarded certificates and house points when they show they have been determined, passionate, a good team member, have self-belief, honest and have been respectful in any subject or part of the day at Burradon Community Primary.
What is Burradon Community Primary doing as part of this initiative?
Each year since 2012, we have taken part in competitions within school and out of school in a range of sports and each year, we are becoming more confident, competitive and competent in many sporting events.
Each year, we strive to meet increasingly challenging requirements in order to apply for the School games Mark and have been extremely proud to be awarded PLATINUM for the past three academic years!
