Trinity Catholic College has recently been awarded the Youth Sport Trust Bronze Quality Mark for its commitment to physical education (PE) and school sport. The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity that is building 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 award for the quality of their PE and school sport. The tool supports schools to audit their PE provision and identify priorities for their development.
Trinity has been very successful this year with Girls’ Netball and Boys’ Football competitions together with the Health and Wellbeing clubs run within the College.
Schools are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold status, which reflects their efforts in using PE and school sport to raise achievement across the College.
Headteacher, Mr Peter Coady said,
“We are absolutely thrilled to have been awarded the Bronze Quality Mark from the Youth Sport Trust, which recognises our commitment to delivering the best possible sporting experiences for the young people at our school. There are a whole range of educational, health and well-being benefits from delivering high quality PE and school sport and we see on a regular basis that when it is delivered well it can transform the lives of all pupils.”
Ali Oliver, Chief Executive at the Youth Sport Trust said:
“Congratulations to Trinity Catholic College for achieving the Youth Sport Trust Bronze 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.”
