We are delighted to announce that Westwood First School has achieved the School Games Mark Gold Award for the 2017/18 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Our sporting achievements this year include taking part in a number of tournaments and winning many of them. Tournaments include: rounders, athletics, football, hockey, netball, rugby, archery, cross country, cricket and swimming.
With many young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to all the children who have taken part, to Mr Wilson and the parents who have supported us, to St. Edward's Academy Sports Leaders for helping and to Mrs Preece our PE leader for organising so many wonderful sporting opportunities.
We look forward to applying once again in 2019!
