The county offer is more targeted, with provision aimed at supporting groups of young people in specific schools, based on their development needs. Focusing on certain groups means a greater impact on those who have the most to gain.
Competitions and events are designed to allow focus on the development needs of young people across four key areas:
- Physical development - A focus on physical activity and competition to support the development of young people’s motor skills. Emphasises both direct, and long term health benefits.
- Personal development – Focusing on the positive role physical activity and competition has to develop leadership skills and increase self-awareness. Enhancing the quality of life and young people's awareness of who they are and what they can achieve.
- Social development – Focused on providing a sense of belonging, developing skills such as teamwork, communication and respect for others and society.
- Emotional development – Focusing on the improvement of young people’s self-esteem: reducing stress, supporting their mental wellbeing and building their resilience while growing their understanding of other’s feelings.
The Surrey School Games are more than sport and competition. We actively promote the Spirit of the School Games which provides opportunities to develop leadership through volunteering, officiating, being a role model and so much more.
