Sainsbury’s School Games Kitemark 2012/13 criteria

Gabor Papp | 04/02/2013

Schools will be able to assess themselves against the criteria from Monday 3 June 2013 until Friday 27 September 2013. All schools will be emailed with confirmation of the dates and links to supporting documents prior to the 03 June.

What if my school has achieved a previous Kitemark?

The Kitemark is an annual award and must be reapplied for each year. Your previous award will be archived on your dashboard along with your previous application. Your application form will refresh and all information will need to be re-entered.

What do I recieve when I achieve a gold, silver or bronze award?

If your school has achieved the Sainsbury's School Games Kitemark for the for the previous academic year you will be able to download the awarded logo  and view your application via your school dashboard. Your School Games Organiser (SGO) will receive your official Sainsbury's School Games Kitemark certificate and will present this to you.

Once a Kitemark has been awarded to your school you are able to use the appropriate logo on letterheads and other materials such as newsletters or your school website. Your school profile page on www.yourschoolgames.com will update to proudly display your logo on the public facing site.

How does the online application for the Sainsbury's School Games Kitemark work?

The online application form will ask you to complete a series of questions to determine which level of Kitemark your school has achieved.

Some sections of this form will be pre-populated with data you have submitted via your school dashboard about the Sainsbury's School Games events you have or will run. Don't forget your School Games Organiser (SGO) can also add events on your school's behalf which may pre-populate certain fields. If none of this data is available or not up-to-date that's okay, you will still be able to enter or override this information manually.

Throughout the application form, above each question, you will see a handy key which indicates whether the question is applicable for bronze, silver or gold Sainsbury's School Games Kitemark applications.

Evidence will be required for all levels achieved.
