Full list of Derbyshire School Games virtual competition winners revealed

All the winners of the Derbyshire School Games virtual competitions have now been revealed.

A lucky 13 Derbyshire schools have each won equipment vouchers ranging from £100 to £850 after taking part in virtual county competitions as part of the School Games resources to keep young people active.

Each week, for 11 weeks from April to July, a sport-based challenge was set, with participating pupils earning points for their school and a certificate.

Each week the primary or secondary school with the most entries per children on roll received a £100 equipment voucher – with Heath Primary School, Palterton Primary School, Buxton Junior School, Barlborough Primary School, Osmaston Primary School, Town End Junior School and Eyam CofE Primary School all winning prizes.

Following the end of the challenges a winning school in each school sport partnership area has also been identified, with each of these schools receiving a £200 voucher. These schools are Codnor Community Primary School, Heath Primary School, Spire Junior School, St Albans Catholic Voluntary Academy, Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, St Laurence C of E Primary School, Buxton Junior School and Overseal Primary School.

Heath Primary School also won the overall county prize and will be receiving an additional £350 to help support their PE and physical activity offer.

The virtual competitions were part of weekly resources put together by Active Derbyshire and the School Games Organiser network in Derbyshire, to keep children and young people active at home and school.

Each pack contained a schedule of suggested activity challenges for the week and daily activity cards. They also linked to ideas on how to achieve an additional 30 minutes each day, to help young people achieve an average of at least 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a day across the week.

Miss Leach, PE co-ordinator, at Town End Junior School in Tibshelf, said: "The resources provided an excellent weekly focus. It raised the profile of the various sports covered, giving ideas for fitness and training, and the children really enjoyed the virtual challenge."
