20 Million Steps Competition - £500 prize

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 14:50

Northamptonshire County Council have some great prizes to give away for those schools who manage to clock up the highest number of steps, with prizes for top two Primary Schools (including infant and Junior) and top two Secondary Schools)

  • 1st Place: £500 worth of vouchers towards sports equipment
  • 2nd Place: £250 worth of vouchers towards sports equipment

To provide an even playing field, and ensure the competition is inclusive of all schools the highest number of steps will be calculated by adding a schools total number of accumulated steps divided by number of pupils on role (Reception to Yr 6 & Staff or Yr 7 to Year 13 & Staff).

For example NSport Primary School accumulate 20,000 steps, have 120 pupils on the school role and 30 members of staff working at the school - 20,000/150 = 133 steps.

An awful lot of time and resources are currently being wasted by schools withdrawing at late notice and failing to turn up to competitions/events organised by the Partnership. It not only causes problems to the core staff, but it also affects the other schools involved in the competition/event.

Therefore schools who fail to give at least 48 hours' notice to withdraw or fail to turn up will be fined £25. This will be ring-fenced to go towards the cost of equipment and certificates for 2017/18.
