An opportunity to motivate and inspire young people across Dartford and Swanley to take part in more competitive school sport.
ACADEMIC YEAR 2020-2021
The Dartford School Games Partnership, along with School Games organisers across Kent, has been working together in response to Government guidelines around COVID 19 to put in place our School Games offer for the academic year 2020-2021. As little is known at this stage around timescales for schools to be able to take part in team sports, the first long-term (September-December) will consist of a menu of virtual competitions. The design of these formats will allow schools to use them flexibly for personal challenge, intra school competition and virtually to compete against pupils in other schools. As restrictions ease, regular reviews will take place with a view to working towards a physical county final event in the spring or summer term, if permitted. The School Games network hopes to use this situation as a positive to focus on driving up participation, increasing fundamental movement skills and preparing young people for a lifelong love of physical activity.
