BRODETSKY PRIMARY SCHOOL ACHIEVES YOUTH SPORT TRUST SILVER QUALITY MARK
Brodetsky Primary School in Leeds has been awarded the Youth Sport Trust SILVER Quality Mark for its commitment to physical education (PE) and school sport at its school. The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity that builds a brighter future for young people through the power of sport.
The Quality Mark is an online self-review tool which provides schools with a nationally recognised badge of excellence for the quality of its PE and school sport. The tool supports schools to audit their PE provision and identify priorities for its development.
Mrs Bhogal and Miss Jagger said
Our PE provision is a real strength of our school and is embedded in our provision due to the hard work and determination of Mrs Benton and Mrs Moore. They are inspiring our children and staff to increase participation in physical activity by arranging a wide range of opportunities for us all. We are all really proud of our achievements and look forward to what our PE Leaders have envisioned for us next. We would also like to say thank you to Mrs Lisa Lee for her involvement and support as a Governor.
Mrs Benton and Mrs Moore (PE Coordinators) said:
Brodetsky has been actively seeking to improve and expand the opportunities for our pupils to participate in physical activity and sporting competitions. So far this year we have introduced more lunch time and after school clubs, our Active 15 initiative into the school week. We have also taken teams and individuals to represent the schools in tournaments and inclusive participation events such as swimming, football, cross country, sports hall athletics, tag rugby, bench ball and tennis.
We are hugely thankful to all our parents and pupils who are incredibly supportive and enthusiastic. We are looking forward to further development over the coming year.
Schools are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold status, which reflects its efforts in using PE and school sport to raise achievement across the school. When a school is awarded the Gold Quality Mark, the Youth Sport Trust will visit the school and validate its self-review.
Alison Oliver, Chief Executive at the Youth Sport Trust, said:
“Congratulations to Brodetsky for achieving the Youth Sport Trust SILVER Quality Mark. Schools which achieve the Quality Mark, share our belief in the value of high quality PE and sport and the positive impact it has on young people’s journey through education.
“PE and school sport helps young people to live healthy and active lives and through it, helps them achieve their personal best in school and life. We are delighted to be working with thousands of schools across the country that recognise the competitive advantage this gives to their pupils.”
