School Games AT HOME VIRTUAL Challenge (PE)

 collection of ongoing challenges linked to the School Games are being developed by the Birmingham School Games Organisers (SGO) and Sport Birmingham. You will be able to find these challenges on the Birmingham’s Personal Challenge portal (

The School Games is a National Initiative open to any young person. It forms part of the legacy work after the London 2012 Olympics and is an opportunity for young people to play, compete, and represent their school in a wide range of sports and activities.

Anyone can have a go at a challenge, but you must be between 4-16 year’s old to submit results and attend a Birmingham Educational Institution. We strongly encourage parents/carers to get involved in supporting their child with their challenges too.

Here’s some tips to get you started;

  • Every child can submit multiple results per challenge (depending on the challenge) so why not try and beat you own personal best?
  • There will be prizes for individuals who finish in the top 5 for each challenge. Once a challenge has been completed, and if you are in the top 5 you will receive a virtual School Games Value Badge that was assigned for that challenge. Once school has resumed, and it is safe to do so, your SGO can award a real badge.
  • You can find out more about your SGO hub site, Sport Birmingham and the School Games by clicking on any of School logos at the bottom of the SGO Challenge page. You will need to register to find out who your SGO is if you don’t know already.If you registered over the summer, then you can use the same log in details.
