School Games Values


All pupils leaving Adderley Primary School are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle with lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. At Adderley, children from EYFS to Year 6 learn about the School Games Values and how these skills affect their experience in sport, PE and physical activity.

There are six School Games values. These values were developed to recognise how the experience of sport should be epitomised and embodied within schools, and to reflect the ‘spirit’ of the School Games.

The School Games Values focus on personal excellence through competition and were developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around.


With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation


Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other’s’ success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.


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.

Self belief

You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self-belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.


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.


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!
