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?
