Level 5 Certificate in primary school physical education specialists
We are pleased to say both Mr. Hart and Miss Smith have passed their Level 5 award. Both teachers are delighted and have already started to put into practice what they have learnt.
The purpose of the afPE Quality Mark:
A prestigious award is a powerful way of celebrating success. The afPE Quality Mark will recognise, through a succinct self review and evaluation process, the strength and quality of physical education and sport in your school. It will raise the profile of the subject and the school both locally and nationally and will promote the high quality work that is being undertaken on a day to day basis. High quality physical education and sport makes a difference to the learning and experiences of children and young people both within the subject and more widely across the curriculum.
