broad lane award

Stapeley Broad Lane Primary School in Nantwich has been awarded the prestigious Platinum School Games Mark Award.

The Platinum Award was launched in 2018 as an extension of the School Games Mark.

It rewards schools who have maintained consistently high standards with their school sport provision.

Stapeley Broad Lane has had success in the local area, representing Crewe and Nantwich in County finals over the past few years in sports such as Kwik Cricket, Girls Football, Tri-golf, Tag Rugby, Basketball, Orienteering and Mini-Tennis.

The school, which has achieved five successive gold awards since 2014, submitted a detailed case study, which satisfied criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs.

The application was backed by school games organiser Chris Hughes, of Crewe and Nantwich School Sport Partnership, who is based at Ruskin High School in Crewe.

Chris said: “I would like to say a huge congratulations to Stapeley Broad Lane on receiving the School Games Mark Platinum Award.

“This award demonstrates their continued commitment to providing high quality sport and competition for all of their pupils and is the culmination of five years of hard work.

“Well done on the award and I look forward to seeing Stapeley at more events next year.”

Headteacher at Stapeley Broad Lane Ian Shackleton added: “We are delighted to have received the prestigious School Games Mark Platinum Award.

“It is recognition of the sustained commitment and enthusiasm from Matt Beeston and Marco Cura, our PE co-ordinators, and the children of Stapeley Broad Lane Primary School towards an active and healthy lifestyle.

“We are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.”

The school is now exempt from next year’s School Games Mark award process and will automatically receive the Platinum Award again in 2020.

They have also received a special plaque to commemorate their achievement.
