Sainsburys' Sports Award

Sainsburys Sports Marks: 2013-2016

St. Patrick’s has had its most successful year with regards to sport and pupil participation. As a direct result of the PE funding we were delighted to achieve our GOLD School Games Mark in June 2015 (previously being Silver in 2013-2014 and Bronze in 2012-2013). This is a fantastic achievement and a reflection of the hard work and dedication put in by both pupils and staff. This was achieved by children participating in a range of after school clubs and both inter and intra competitions.


Pupil Participation Data

GOLD Sainsburys Sports Mark: During the previous academic year, the level of pupil participation rose to 56% for pupils across Key Stages 1 and 2. When looking at the data, 96% of Year 6 pupils were given the opportunity to take part in an after school club or represent the school in both Levels 1 and 2 competitions which was a fantastic result for all children involved. With this high level of participants, it has encouraged us as a school to raise the bar even higher and aim for 65% pupil participation. We will be able to achieve this with the help of the Sports Premium Funding and the commitment and dedication of staff to support these sporting activities.


Silver Sainsburys Sports Mark: With the help of the Pupil Sports Premium, in 2013-2014 we excelled from the previous year (2012-2013) and the data equated to 149 children participating in an after school club which resulted in 56% Participants 44% Non- Participants. Within this data, 84 children participated in more than one after school club. This is a fantastic achievement and one that we are very proud of.


Bronze Sainsburys Sports Mark: In 2012-2013, 66 children participated in after school clubs which resulted in having 23% Participants and 77% Non- Participants. This resulted in St. Patrick’s achieving the Sainsbury’s Sports Mark Bronze award.
