4. Promoting the School Games Values

Promoting the values of the School Games is a key element of every School Games competition. Participants, young leaders, teachers, spectators and officials are all asked to adhere to these values. All of those in attendance at events are given the opportunity to nominate schools who best display these values to win the Surrey School Games Values Award.

5. Attending an Event or Festival

Attending a School Games Event or Festival is a very special and memorable event for your young people. To ensure all young people have the best experience, please ensure they bring appropriate clothing and care for the weather as well as enough water to keep them hydrated. Teachers should bring First Aid kits at stand-alone events.

We have developed Resources for participants in primary and secondary schools to use whilst on their Journey to the Surrey School Games, this asks them questions and prepares them for their event and ensures they get the best out of the experience.
