38 schools in Thurrock successfully achieved the School Games Mark for 2015/16, this was 72% of schools in the borough and an increase of 4% on 2014/15.

Every school that applied achieved the award. The number of schools achieving the Gold award increased by 233% on Thurrock’s 2014/15 results which was 57% above the national average!

The Daily Mile

We are continuing to promote the Daily Mile in Thurrock and now have around 13 primary schools in the Borough participating.

The Daily Mile is an excellent initiative that is going on across the country designed to make children more active!

It is proven to improve physical, social and mental well being.

It is fun, friendly and social – which is vital to ensure sustainability

It it not a race or competition – it is fully inclusive, with no need to change in PE Kit.

Children enjoy a sense of freedom in the fresh air!

Active Essex our County Sports Partnership presented their first award to winning schools last week and I am delighted to announce that one of the 2 schools awarded was East Tilbury Primary.

The Daily Mile pack is available to download from the SSP website along with school data return sheets for you all to get involved and be as equally successful as East Tilbury!

Schools Medal Table

The Schools Medal Table is in full swing with points being awarded to schools for participating, finishing in 3rd, 2nd and 1st place.

The current leaders are Little Thurrock with 380 points, Warren are not far behind in 2nd place with 350 and in 3rd Thameside with 305.

There is still plenty of time for those schools who have not yet competed in any events to get involved. All our competitions for years 3-6 are completely free to enter so there are no excuses to not participate and give chlldren from your school the opportunity to be involved!
