TEMA Retains Association for PE Quality Mark (afPE)

Our PE Department have done it again! For the second time in a row we’ve achieved the Association for PE Quality Mark with Distinction.

Purpose of the afPE Quality Mark

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. This prestigious award is a powerful way of celebrating success. The afPE Quality Mark recognises, through a succinct self-review and evaluation process, the strength and quality of physical education and sport in a school. The award ensures that the PE team are performing at the highest national standard and promotes the high quality work that is being undertaken on a day to day basis.

The PE Department should be very proud of retaining the prestigious quality mark with distinction. The afPE subject review highlighted the team’s passion and commitment to delivering quality school sport. In addition, the review demonstrated the positive impact that school sport is having on our student’s physical and mental health & well-being. We were praised for promoting resilience, teamwork and determination in all areas of our curriculum and our engagement in all PE lessons was to the highest standard.
