We are thrilled to announce that the 2018 School Games Mark application window is now open! Schools can get their applications started right now on their School Games dashboard.
Please remember that the application does not need to completed in one go and you can save your progress at any time, you will be able to pick up from the same spot at a later time or date. For the first time ever the application form is also fully mobile-compatible meaning you can complete it quickly and easily on any device.
◾The window for applying for the School Games Mark will remain open until Friday 03 August so there is plenty of time to get your application in.
◾We will endeavour to verifyyour applications by Friday 14 September 2018 so you should know your grade by early next term at the latest. As in previous years some schools will also be selected for an external validation visit.
◾If you are applying for the Platinum level of the award then you will be prompted to do so as an extension of the same application form. If you are prompted to apply for Platinum but do not wish to do so then just press 'submit application' as normal.
◾If you were a Platinum award winner last year then you should find that the updated 2017/18 Digital Celebration Pack is immediately ready for you to download from your dashboard. You do not need to apply again and you will not be able to do so.
◾If you have any questions don't hesitate to consult the School Games Mark criteria documentation, links to which can be found below if you haven't got them from your dashboard yet.
Good luck to all schools that apply this year!
