Why should your school get involved?

The sportscotland School Sport Award provides schools with the following benefits:

  • An online self assessment tool to identify current strengths and areas for improvement in PE and school sport.
  • A development plan template to improve any areas of weakness.
  • The opportunity to achieve national recognition with a Bronze, Silver or Gold sportscotland School Sport Award.

Schools interested in gaining an award complete an initial self assessment which identifies if they are at Bronze or Silver. Schools who achieve 75% or above will be able to apply for Gold.


Get on the medal board!

The Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards formally recognise school’s achievement in putting physical education and school sport at the heart of their planning, practice and ethos. The awards also highlight and celebrate successful physical education and school sport models across Scotland.
