Get Set, the official youth engagement programme of the British Olympic Association and British Paralympic Association, has launched the Values Awards, a brand new educational resource for primary and secondary schools.
The Values Awards boosts values education and volunteering by offering schools the opportunity to recognise and reward young people aged between 7 and 19 for their commitment to the Olympic Values of friendship, excellence and respect, and the Paralympic Values of inspiration, determination, courage and equality.
Young people will develop life skills, get active and learn how to become responsible citizens.
The resources are comprised of online and offline activities and challenges in three categories:
The Get Set Values Awards are curriculum-linked for PSHE, PSE, Citizenship and other related programmes of study for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as the broader delivery of values-based education.
Throughout the Autumn term, your school will be entered into a special prize draw for every student who completes one of the three Values Awards before 2 February.
That means schools and students stand a chance of winning exclusive prizes, including visits from multiple Paralympic Gold medallist Sophie Christiansen CBE or Rio 2016 silver medal-winning Rugby 7s star James Rodwell, one of five Samsung Tablets, signed athlete goodies or an exclusive Values Awards poster.
Upon completion of each Award, you can unlock certificates for your students and have your school entered into our prize draw!
Getting started with the Values Awards is quick and easy for teachers:
