Spirit of the Games, Inspiration through Sport
All Saints' CofE Acedemy follows the national "School Games" programme. School Games is the opportunity for all pupils to get involved in sport. Whether it is participating in the different sports, competing in inter-house competitions, representing All Saints' against other schools. leading others, volunteering or adding to the atmosphere at matches played at All Saints, there is something for everyone,
At the heart of the School Games is the understanding that competitive sport needs to be made accessible and enjoyable for all young people. By structuring competitive sport at a range of levels to suit the needs of their children, All Saints' are be able to ensure that young people are able to take part in meaningful competitive sport at a level that is right for them. The School Games programme also presents some excellent opportunities for our pupils to become sports reporters, leaders, officials and volunteers
The School Games Mark was launched to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community via club links. All Saints' currently have achieved the Bronze mark and are working to obtain silver.
The Spirit of the Games Values focus on personal excellence through competition and were developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around. There are six values which we at All Saints' promote:
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 and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other’s’ 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 every day, 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!
