We are delighted to announce that Burlington Junior School achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2016/17 academic year. 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.
We have had a number of sporting achievements and an increase in young people competing at the local inter school competitions which has allowed us to compete at level 2 and level 3!
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 the children who have taken part, we are extremely proud of them and their dedication to all aspects of school sport at Burlington Junior School. Thanks also to the parents who have supported their children and all staff who have helped facilitate sport in some way or other during the year!
We look forward to applying once again in 2018!
