Lincolnshire School Games

Active Lincolnshire lead the county-wide Lincolnshire School Games, giving children across Lincolnshire the chance to take part in inclusive sport.

  • About the Games

    About the Games 

    The Lincolnshire School Games offer a wide range of fun, inclusive sports and activities to get children moving. Responding to local need and insight, the School Games aim to create positive experiences in a fun, safe environment, and provide children with the foundations for a more active lifestyle.

    At Active Lincolnshire, we help schools across the county to deliver accessible School Games to every single student. By giving schools access to a wider, more inclusive range of sports, we’re here to help every child discover the joy of movement.

    How it works

    The School Games creates opportunities and experiences that young people will enjoy. The combined national network of over 450 School Games Organisers and more than 40 Active Partnerships work together locally to deliver targeted opportunities for young people from over 40 different sports and activities. The Youth Sport Trust, as the development agency supporting the network, works with a range of partners including 44 National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs), who drive content around their school sport offers, alongside other partners such as eight National Disability Sport Organisations who check and challenge inclusive practice and the Active Partnership Network who help ensure that interventions are intelligence led.

    Why should you get involved?

    The School Games supports the wider development of young people and we want schools to position this as a key component of their offer.

    Physical Development: Being active for at least 60 minutes a day supports young people to have immediate and long-term health benefits.

    Personal Development: The School Games has a positive impact on young people's personal development, such as developing their leadership skills and resilience.

    Emotional Development: The School Games improves young people's self-esteem, reduces stress, supports their mental wellbeing and builds their resilience.

    Social Development: The School Games provides a sense of belonging, enabling young people to develop their teamwork, communication, empathy and respect for others.

    Instilling the School Games values of passion, self-belief, respect, honesty, determination and teamwork supports schools to achieve their broader whole school objectives.

    School Games Organisers Network

    Funded by Sport England, the School Games programme is designed to give every young person the chance to take part in inclusive and accessible sport – regardless of ability. To make this happen, a network of School Games Organisers (SGOs) works to deliver the School Games across the country, developing opportunities and promoting the event.

    School Games Organisers support the schools in their local area to create fun, inclusive opportunities that engage every child. They also work with clubs to develop more activity opportunities for young people, as well as recruiting, training and deploying a suitable workforce to run the School Games events.
