School Games

The School Games provides an opportunity for young people from the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester to participate in intra-school and inter school competition at a borough and county level.

The School Games operate at three distinct, but integrated levels which provides an opportunity for young people from the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester to participate in intra-school and inter school, at a borough and county level, events.

Characteristics

The next phase of development of the School Games will focus on ensuring it is relevant to more children and young people and their lives today and allows more of them to achieve their potential. In driving this forward the School Games will seek to:

  • Bring about a sense of competence
  • Promote enjoyment
  • Avoid negative or bad experience.

To be relevant to young people and their lives, the School Games will evolve in 2019/20 so it:

  • Is relevant to schools nurturing the development of character, values and life skills.
  • Contributes to daily physical activity.
  • Harnesses the power of digital technology and is vibrant, engaging and relevant to children and young people today.
  • Leverages the inspiration of This Girl Can and reaches more girls and young women and reaches out to other under-represented groups (including those with special education needs or disabilities).
  • Is increasingly organised, coached and officiated by children and young people.
  • Aids retention through primary-secondary transition.
  • Embraces a positive role for parents.
  • Builds off the excitement of (UK hosted) major events.
