SPAR Lancashire School Games 2020-21

We’re thrilled to present the 2020-21 SPAR Lancashire School Games. A very warm welcome to you all.

Following on from the success of last year’s SPAR Lancashire School Games Stay at Home Programme and with the continued restrictions Lancashire School Games Organisers have decided to create some new virtual resources for Schools to use during Term 1.

The start of this year will certainly be different, but the School Games will continue! The Games ensure that physical activity and competition are available to support young peoples’ wider development, including their ability to re-socialise and improve their physical and mental well-being.

The School Games are designed to be age appropriate and you will find a selection of activities along with a mix of competitions and challenges, both intra-school and inter-school. Once again, pupils will be able to have fun, compete, push themselves, show grit and determination and challenge each other. All activities should be undertaken with the School Games values in mind.

Your School Games - School Games Values

There are four sports for you to explore during Term 2: Netball, Handball, Rugby & Dance
