Spirit of the Games

The Spirit of the Games Values focus on personal excellence through competition.

As part of our school life, we encourage the children to strive to achieve the Olympic values in every aspect of school life and beyond.

There are six values:

Spirit of the Games - Honesty Honesty
With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.
Spirit of the Games - Teamwork Teamwork
Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each others’ success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.
Spirit of the Games - Respect Respect
Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone around you.
Spirit of the Games - Self Belief Self-Belief
You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self-belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
Spirit of the Games - Passion Passion
Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.
Spirit of the Games - Determination Determination
Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self-discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!

The six values of passion, belief, respect, honesty, determination and teamwork were developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around. These values have been successfully applied by schools to developing a range of behaviours, qualities and inter-personal skills with their students based on sporting experiences, scenarios and attitudes.

Children who demonstrate these values are able to earn badges to show their dedication and achievement.
