Impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE & sport participation and attainment:
For the past few years, Ramsbury has one the title of Top Performing Primary School in Wiltshire & Swindon in Sport. We are also extremely proud to have achieved the School Games Platinum Award.
Platinum criteria – only applicable to schools who can demonstrate they have achieved the gold standard for 5 years. We have shown consistent engagement with the School Games, it’s mission and values and as such, we have been able to demonstrate we have had an exceptional impact on participation and on attainment for all pupils.
We fulfil the following criteria to become one of the very few schools to achieve the Platinum Award:
If a school has previously achieved four consecutive gold awards and have met the
standard for this year’s gold award, then they will be eligible to apply for platinum.
Through the platinum award, we want to learn where schools are in their engagement with the evolution of the School Games. We want to understand what it takes to be a fully engaged and committed school so that we can help others on their journey of change. As a result, we will look for some narrative from these schools to demonstrate the impact and meaningful difference they are making. This will be in the form of a case study submitted alongside their application.
Schools are asked to select one of the following areas for their case study, making their submission in a number of ways, e.g. a narrative written by a third party, a written case study, a video case study, a submission led by young people, etc.
The options are shown below:
- Demonstrate how you are engaging those young people that need it the most in the School
- Games and evidence how you know they are benefiting
- Demonstrate how you are a physically literate school and how this positively impacts on your young people
- Demonstrate how you are developing and co-creating your offer with your young people
- Demonstrate your understanding of young people’s motivations and how you build this into your offer
- Demonstrate how you have embedded positive experiences of competition into your offer and how this has made a difference to your uptake
- Demonstrate how have you ensured that you have developed and maintained 60 active minutes across your school.

How the improvements will be sustainable in the future:
Our consistent approach ensures that we continue to improve our pupils’ sporting achievements each year that they are attend our school, giving them the best possible chance to develop a lifelong passion for PE & sport. We have been the top performing primary school in Swindon and Wiltshire for the past five years and aim to retain our title every year.
