NFS PE Obtain a BRONZE School Games Mark

The PE department have been awarded the Bronze School Games mark for all of the students' participation and competition in sports during 2016-17! Well done everyone! Let's try to get that silver!

What is the School Games Mark?

The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels.

Why should our school be bothered about this mark?

OfSTED can use the Mark award as part of their inspection framework

To achieve BRONZE LEVEL, your school or educational setting must meet all of the following:


  • plans in place to provide all students with two hours of Physical Education and school sport per week inclusive of extra curriculum provision
  • engage at least 20% of pupils in extra-curricular sporting activity every week


  • use the School Games formats to provide the opportunity for both boys and girls to take part in the appropriate level of competition
