• Platinum School Games Award

    • 19th October 2022

    The Firs School is delighted to report that we have once again been awarded the prestigious Platinum School Games Award in recognition of the physical and competitive sports opportunities we provide to the children in our care.

    In order to achieve this award the school had to meet strict assessment criteria in the following areas;

    Participation – how many children at the school are being engaged in sporting activity?

    Competition – how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?

    Workforce – how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?

    Clubs – how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?

    The award celebrates schools who put physical activity and competitive sport at their heart, and recognises just how well children at The Firs are provided with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.

    At The Firs we have a strong belief that all children should have the opportunity to compete, regardless of their ability or skill level. We celebrate the personal achievement of all of our pupils and believe that team work and competition enables them to develop their personal, social and physical confidence. We are so proud of the award and all that we do here at The Firs to promote physical activity.
