School Games levels
The School Games pathway give the chance for young people to reach success at a county and national level. These are:
Competitions are planned and delivered by the ‘School Games Organisers’ (SGOs) of which there are eight working across Coventry, Solihull & Warwickshire. The SGOs work with their local schools to ensure competitive school sport opportunities are open and inclusive for all. Within each sport the winning team from each of the eight areas will come together for the level 3 County Festival. Competitions are organised for pupils from mainstream and special schools.
Events aim to involve as many children and young people from across the partnership area as possible. For those pupils who are not involved in the sports competitions there is the opportunity to be involved in such activities as: photography, media reporting, volunteering and performing in the opening or closing ceremonies.
