The Sainsbury’s School Games are designed to build on the magic of London 2012 to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sport, including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters:
- Intra-school (Level 1): Sporting competition for all students in school through intra-school competition
- Inter-school (Level 2): Individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools in local inter-school competitions and winners of these competitions represent the Salford borough at the Level 3 School Games
- Sainsbury's School Games Festivals (Level 3): The county/area will stage multi-sport Sainsbury's School Games Festivals as a culmination of year-round school sport competition
