Maplefields Achieve Sporting Recognition
Maplefields School Games Recognition Award
Throughout this year we have been working towards achieving our school games mark. Unfortunately, due to covid-19 and the amount of teaching time lost, the process has been delayed for the academic year. However, due to the exceptional work that had been achieved throughout year within PE, we have been provided with the School Games Recognition Award. This award has been given to schools who would have been likely to achieve recognition through the school games mark. This is awarded based on participation in SSP and district competition and broader engagement with the SSP. In order to achieve the school games mark, schools must meet expectations provided. We have met these by delivery a wide variety of sports across primary and secondary, introduced extra curriculum activities, including basketball and football and participated in competitive competitions with other schools within the county. Additionally, we have we have participated and won or at least been in the top two schools during the Northamptonshire Sport Virtual Games. These challenges have been completed by pupils in school as well as at home. It has been excellent to see involvement from pupils taking on these challenges! Another highlight of the Northamptonshire Virtual Games is that Maplefields have not only been winning the category for special schools within the county but have also been winning against all mainstream schools in the county. This is an outstanding achievement and a credit to our pupils for fully committing to the challenges. Although it is disappointing not to achieve the Gold School Games Mark for this year, we fully intend to achieve this next year…. Watch this space!!
