Inter and Intra School Competitions and Events

Halebank C E Primary School participate in Halton School Games

Support for primary schools 

Creating a programme of PE, school sport and physical activity which meets the needs of everyone is challenging, especially with an average of 260 pupils in each primary school. A well-planned, bespoke PE and school sport offer can give pupils an opportunity to demonstrate their potential, develop their confidence, self-esteem and support them in being active for life.

It’s why MSP offers a range of services to help schools develop a plan that’s right for them.

With support from us over a third of Merseyside primary schools now enjoy the benefits of The Daily Mile ™. Whilst over 100 schools a year engage with us for the Merseyside School Games county final events.

School Games

The mission of the School Games programme is ‘Keeping competitive sport at the heart of schools and providing more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best’

MSP believes that this fully-inclusive programme offers lots of benefits for children and young people, not just within sport itself, but in their wider academic and adult life. It’s why we’re pleased to deliver the Level 3 School Games in the Liverpool City Region on behalf of Sport England and the Youth Sport Trust, in partnership with a network of School Games Organisers.

Benefits for schools

The School Games programme is underpinned by 6 values, which it aims to instil in young people – i.e. determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-belief, and teamwork. These values align with the Ofsted guidance on what school life should instil and, as a result, the School Games programme can give schools a head start in terms of developing key attributes in their pupils including the following, taken directly from the Ofsted guidance:

  • A sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them..

  • A willingness to reflect on their experiences.

  • An understanding of the consequences of their behaviour and actions.

  • The use of a range of social skills in different contexts, for example, working and socialising with other pupils, including those from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.

  • Willingness to participate in a variety of communities and social settings, including by volunteering, cooperating well with others and being able to resolve conflicts effectively.

  • Acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs; they develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
