Sportsmark a personal view

E-mail Print

How can an award have been so maligned, but also so eagerly sought after? How can a headteacher be so vitriolic about his school's failure to achieve the award that he believes all his local partnerships will deteriorate and fall apart and another say there is only one word in sport up here – 'Sportsmark'. The plain fact of the matter is, the Sportsmark award has achieved, in its first two years, a notoriety which has caused great pleasure to some and pain and 'tears' to others.
