The Sainsbury’s School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport. Each academic year, Granby applies through their award scheme for either a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum level. Each application is assessed based on a school's sports provision through events, clubs and curriculum PE.
The Games are made up of different levels of activity including competition in schools and between schools:
The Sainsbury’s School Games is based around 6 key values. We encourage our children to follow these values, not only in sport, but in everything they do.
The Spirit of the Games Values focus on personal excellence through competition. There are six values:
Honesty: With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.
Treat everyone equally, support each other’s and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each others’ success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.
Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect everyday, in everything you do and for everyone around you.
You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.
Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!
