afPE Quality Mark for Physical Education, School Sport & Physical Activity

What is the afPE Quality Mark?

The afPE Quality Mark is a prestigious award that will evidence the strength and quality of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) in your school. It will raise the profile of the subject and the school, both locally and nationally, and will promote the outstanding work that is being undertaken on a daily basis.

The afPE Quality Mark is a unique self-review and evaluation process that involves the completion of an application form as well as a school visit by one of afPE’s Validation Team of highly qualified school improvement professionals.

Your validator will support you through the process (via telephone and email support) and will conduct a school visit as part of the award. There are three application windows every year and schools should allow themselves up to three months to carry out the application.

The benefits of the afPE Quality Mark:

  • Ensures rigour and sustainability in the planning, monitoring and continuous development of high quality PESSPA
  • Recognises and celebrates outstanding practice and innovation in PESSPA so that the school ‘stands out from the crowd’
  • Provides evidence of whole school improvement
  • Raises the profile and promotes a positive message of PESSPA at local, regional and national levels
  • Provides a platform for sharing excellence and success
  • Outlines where your school is now, and where you are going

Bupa ‘Start to Move’ provides 4-7 year olds with the foundations for successful participation in Physical Education and Sport.

The programme aims to:

  1. Equip teachers with the techniques and confidence to teach core movement skills.
  2. Give children the movement skills, enthusiasm and confidence to begin lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
  3. Support learning in Physical Education in ways similar to other subjects, i.e. helping children to learn the ABCs of movement.

Key Stage 2

Getting more young people taking part in Physical Education and Sport

Primary Active Leaders:
Developing Leadership Skills in Physical Education Lessons

A fresh approach to leadership in Physical Education, to enable young people to develop leadership roles. It encourages young people in Key Stage 2 to step forward, develop their skills and realise their leadership potential within Physical Education lessons.

Primary PE Passport

The PE Passport is simply unique! The quality within its content; the breadth of coverage and its portability make it simply a must-have! Written and designed by primary school teachers and leaders with PE specialism and years of experience of teaching PE, it is the answer to all PE leaders; senior leaders and teachers’ dreams!
Furthermore, you are only ever tied into a one year contract, so confident are we that you will want to renew at the discounted rate in Year 2 and ongoing.

Purchased as an APP the PE Passport is a portable Physical Education planning, assessment and tracking tool designed to enable all Primary School teachers to deliver enjoyable, active and high quality sessions. The PE Passport is child centred and allows pupils' achievements in and out of school to be recorded and tracked from Reception right through to Year 6.

Within the PE Passport schools have access to a full curriculum of engaging, interactive PE lessons for each year group with each lesson containing clear, progressive learning objectives; differentiated activities; and videos to support the narrative.

Teachers can quickly assess and monitor the progress of each individual easily within the curriculum whilst coordinators can track children's levels of participation and competition in extra-curricular clubs, events and competitions.

The PE Passport is created by PE specialists who share a passion for developing a high quality PE provision which is challenging, progressive and memorable.

Physical education (PE) and physical activity

This initial list of physical education (PE) and physical activity resources is based on recommendations from:

  • the Association for Physical Education (afPE)
  • Public Health England (PHE)
  • Sport England
  • the Yorkshire Sport Foundation (YSF)

These resources will help young people to get the daily 60 minutes of activity recommended by the UK Chief Medical Officer (CMO) in fun ways.

All the resources listed here are for activities designed to be carried out indoors or, if available, a garden.

Children and young people can go outside for one form of exercise a day, such as:

  • a walk with members of their household
  • a run with members of their household
  • a cycle with members of their household

Outdoor exercise should be carried out locally.

Children and young people should always follow the latest which means making sure that they and their parent or carer stay more than 2 metres from others (including friends and other family members).
