The Awards

The main aim of the Kent Sport Active Infants Awards is to recognise all schools who are delivering fantastic PE/school sport provision for their KS1 pupils and to reward them for it.

We appreciate that infant schools cannot currently apply for the School Games Mark regardless of their commitment to physical activity and as such we have worked closely with your School Games Organisers to ensure all of your hard work and dedication is formally recognised.

The award will be available at three levels:

Gold Award
Silver Award
Bronze Award

To apply for the Active Infants Award mark, schools need to establish where they fit relating to the criteria and collect a small amount of evidence (registers/trip slips/pictures) to which we can verify your claims of a bronze, silver or gold award. You will need to gather all of your evidence and place it in a folder on your desktop so that it may be checked once you are ready.

Applications for the Active Infants Awards will open in September 2020 and will be open until 31 July 2021. Enquiries should be made to your School Games Organiser (SGO).
