The School Games has been on an incredible journey since its inception in 2010. We are now on the cusp of taking this journey to the next stage to ensure that it reaches every young person and continues to drive competitive school sport. At the core of this work is the unwavering belief that competitive school sport should be at the heart of school life.
The School Games Review determined the following:
Keeping competitive sport at the heart of schools and providing 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.
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:
- engender a sense of competence
- promote enjoyment
- avoid negative or bad experience and promote a positive one
Wiltshire and Swindon School Games is an annual programme which provides a platform for young people to compete in internal school competitions (level 1) through to district competitions (level 2) through to County competitions (level 3). This is coordinated by Wiltshire and Swindon Sport (WASP) in partnership with the Local Organising Committee (LOC) and Management Group and delivered by working with partners across the County including the School Games Organisers, Local Authorities and National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs).
