EGPA Wins School Games Gold Award !

We are delighted to announce that we, East Garforth Primary Academy, have achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the second year running.

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

With a high number of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that
the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.

A special thanks to all parents / carers and volunteers who have helped us achieve this award.

We look forward to applying once again in 2020!
