Wigmore Receive afPE Quality Mark With Distinction
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.
The benefits of the afPE Quality Mark
- Ensures rigour and sustainability in the planning, monitoring and continuous development of high quality physical education and sport
- Recognises outstanding practice and innovation in physical education and sport
- Raises the profile of physical education and sport at a local, regional and national level
- Involves individuals and groups in recording and celebrating success so that the school ‘stands out from the crowd’
- Recognises best practice in physical education and sport and provides a platform for sharing excellence and success
- Promotes a positive message to the local community
- Celebrates excellence in the organisation, management and delivery of physical education and sport
- Showcases how PE and sport contributes to whole school improvement
Platinum Kite Mark Awarded
I am delighted to announce we have just been awarded the new School Games Platinum Mark, and are one of the first and only schools in Luton to achieve this.
The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.
To achieve the new Platinum level, schools must have successfully held a Gold award during the academic years 2013 - 2018 consecutively as well demonstrating the school’s achievements through case study evidence.
Sport and competition is currently thriving in Luton due to the huge range of sporting competitions held throughout the School Year organised by Luton’s School Games Officer. Wigmore ensure that children are able to experience competitive sport with 100% of pupils taking part in intra competitions and 77% of pupil’s competition in Luton School Games Competitions.
After last year’s success of being awarded The Association for Physical Education Quality Mark for Physical Education and Sport, (one of only two primary schools in Bedfordshire to achieve the accolade), we are proud to continue our sporting ethos within the school and this award helps showcase the great commitment and positive attitude shown by pupils, staff and parents towards sport.
