Recognition from The Department for Education -School Games Mark Gold


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. 


Healthy Schools Silver Award


Benefits for schools

Taking part in Healthy Schools, and working successfully for the tiered awards will enable schools to directly support the health and wellbeing of their pupils and staff. 

An evaluation of the national programme on which HSL is based showed the following tangible outcomes:

  • Increased amount of opportunities that children and young people have to be physically active in and out of schools
  • Increased participation of children and young people in physical activity in and out of school
  • Improved links between schools and communities that promote physical activity
  • Increased school meal uptake including free school meals
  • Improved children and young people’s access to healthy packed lunches and snacks throughout the school day.

The benefits go beyond health.  Participating schools have also reported reduced incidence of bullying, improved behaviour and improved attendance.  Headteachers have also said that they found the Healthy Schools Programme helpful as a general school improvement tool.
