What is the Sainsbury's School Games?

The Sainsbury's School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.

The Games are designed to build on the magic of 2012 to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sport, including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters.

Nationally and locally the Sainsbury's School Games is being delivered through partnerships. The national partnership is made up of:

  • the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), which has overall policy leadership, supported by the Department for Education (DofE) and the Department of Health (DOH);
     

  • Sport England, which is the Lottery distributor and are supporting the engagement of Sports Governing Bodies and County Sports Partnerships;
     

  • the Youth Sport Trust, the landscape lead organisation for school sport, which has been commissioned by Sport England to provide development support to schools, sports and other local partners.

At a local level, the Sainsbury's School Games will be delivered by schools, clubs, county sports partnerships and other local partners. Local Organising Committees (LOCs) are being set up, chaired by Head Teachers, to oversee the county festivals. County sports partnerships have an important role to play in helping to stage the festivals.
