THE SCHOOL GAMES
The School Games is a Government and Lottery Funded programme that is designed to keep competitive sport at the heart of school life. The intention is with the support of School Games Organisers that schools will then be able to provide more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.

By 2020 the School Games will be continuing to make a clear and meaningful difference to the lives of even more children and young people
Keeping competitive sport at the heart of schools and provide more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best
LEVEL 1 INTRA-SCHOOL COMPETITION
Inter-form competitions bring the whole school together to enjoy sport. Participating in the intra-school competitions provide an opportunity for pupils to provide a positive contribution towards the school ethos, and demonstrate the school values, which also mirror the Olympic and Paralympic values.
LEVEL 2 INTER-SCHOOL COMPETITION
Individuals and teams are selected to represent their school in a variety of sports and fun activities. A great way for pupils to share, and appreciate each other’s abilities and interests.
WEST YORKSHIRE WINTER AND SUMMER SCHOOL GAMES
The olympic style multi-sport county final. Schools qualify to this round through the district finals.
Within the School Games, Personal Challenge is a student driven/self-led opportunity to attempt to improve performance and can take place both at school and beyond the school day. How a pupil goes about choosing what challenges they want to take on should be personal to them and not just because a friend or someone else has told them to.
You can see a number of examples of Personal Challenges via the videos on the right-hand side of this page.
However big or small, share your personal challenges with us by using the #SGChallenge and join a movement of people in the School Games becoming challenging themselves to become better than they were yesterday.
