I am extremely proud to announce that wigmore primary has been awarded the AFPE quality mark. We have also received the quality mark with distinction, which is the highest accreditation possible. This is an incredible achievement for the school and i would like to thank staff, pupils and parents for their help which has ensured we have a fantastic sports programme here at Wigmore.
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.

Gold Kite Mark Awarded
I am pleased to inform you that the school has been awarded the Sports Games Kite Mark at a gold standard for the forth year in a row. Some examples of criteria needed to gain this award are; how many children participate in sporting competitions, the numerous different sports that our children can take part in at school and the opportunity for every child to take part in sporting activities in school. None of this can be achieved without the constant support from both staff and parents and I would like to thank you for your contribution to this.
Congratulations to both Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 sportshall athletics teams who have both qualified for town finals to be held in January. See full report and pictures on result section of school website. Update - Both teams finished a respectable 5th overall in both finals.
