School Sport Awards
We believe all schools could benefit from taking an annual School Sport Award self-assesment

Please note sportscotland have suspended the School Sport Award for academic year 20-21. 

Any assessments or applications received for academic year 19-20 will be awarded in September 2021. 

The self-assessment tool is still open and available for you to use should you wish to do so.


The sportscotland School Sport Award is a national, Lottery funded initiative designed to encourage schools to continuously improve physical education (PE) and school sport opportunities offered within their School. 

The sportscotland School Sport Award: 

  • Encourages schools to self-reflect and continuously improve  
  • Puts young people at the forefront of the decision making and planning of PE and sport in their school  
  • Helps schools to increase young people’s opportunities and engagement in PE & school sport  
  • Helps schools to put PE & school sport at the heart of their planning, practice and ethos  
  • Recognises and celebrates successful PE & school sport models 

Why should your school get involved? 

The benefits of the sportscotland School Sport Award to schools are as follows: 

  • To Identify current strengths and areas for improvement in PE & school sport  
  • It provides a development plan template to improve any areas of weakness  
  • You get national recognition with a sportscotland School Sport Award
