We are delighted to announce that we, Hadleigh Community Primary School, have achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2022/23 academic year.

The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school’s engagement (provision and uptake) in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our events possible. We are committed to using the School Games to try and engage those young people who haven’t previously been active or represented our school and to try and ensure that all our students have a positive experience and want to try out new activities beyond school too in our community. We believe in the power of physical activity and school sport as a school and give opportunities to those young people that need it most either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer.

H.C.P.S. Receives School Games Virtual Award

Tuesday 14th July 2020

We are very excited to announce that our school has received the School Games Virtual Award for our commitment and engagement towards virtual programmes during the 2020-21 academic year!

Big shout out to PE Ted for all his hard work over the last few months!

Well done to all the pupils, parents and staff that have taken part!

The School Games consists of four unique types of competition:

  • Level 1: (Intra-School Competition) An intra-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between pupils who attend the same school.
  • Level 2: (Local Inter-School Competition) A local inter-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between schools from the same area - either as a one-off fixture or as part of a league.
  • Level 3: (County Finals) A county final is a showcase event held either as the culmination of a series of local inter-school competitions or as open entry events, with invitations made by the Local Organising Committee (LOC).
  • Level 4: (School Games National Finals) The School Games finals: a national multi-sport event where the most talented young people in the UK will be selected to compete in our sporting venues.

The School Games, which is funded by Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, is a government-led programme designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people.

This programme currently services in excess of 20,000 registered schools that compete across School Games’ competitions.

Hadleigh Community Primary School partnership is delivered by Ali Furlong for the Ipswich and South Suffolk area games.
