A Whittlesey school achieved gold in a national competition.

New Road Primary School scored the gold School Games Mark despite being a school with less than 120 pupils.

Janette Bowden, physical education co-ordinator at the school, said: “We have competed in 15 sport competitions this year and reached the county finals in athletics and High5 Netball.

The School Games Mark is a government-led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.

Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics...

• Participation - how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?

• Competition - how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?

• Workforce - how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?

• Clubs - how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?
