Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the Norfolk School Games has gone virtual. During the Autumn term we are running a programme of fun virtual competitions to help pupils return to school and keep active.
The Norfolk School Games is the largest school sport event to ever be held in Norfolk. Since 2012 the annual event has provided opportunities for our pupils across the county to compete in many different sports at different levels. Each year more and more pupils take part with an estimated 18,000 young people accessing 14 different sports across 150 events this year alone. The Games are part of the national School Games initiative which aims to inspire more young people to take part in competitive school sport.
Our vision for the Norfolk School Games is to continue to make a meaningful difference to the lives of the young people who can benefit the most.
Our mission is to keep competitive sport and physical activity at the heart of schools, providing engaging opportunities for young people to develop as characters, realise their potential and continue their pathway to an active, healthy, happy and prosperous life.
The Norfolk School Games is organised by Active Norfolk and the eight School Sport Partnerships (SSPs) in the county and sponsored by the SportsPark.
