St Dominic’s achieves Youth Sport Trust Silver Quality Mark

We have been awarded the Youth Sport Trust Silver Quality Mark for our commitment to physical education (PE) and school sport.

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 A Drayton said:

“We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the Silver Quality Mark from the Youth Sport Trust, which recognises our commitment to delivering the best possible sporting experiences for the children and young people at our wonderful school.  There are a whole range of educational, health and wellbeing 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 and students.”

Alison Oliver, Chief Executive at the Youth Sport Trust, said:

“Congratulations to St Dominic’s School 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.”

 

The residential special school provides highly effective services that consistently exceed the standards of good. The actions of the school contribute to significantly improved outcomes and positive experiences for children and young people. Ofsted – March 2018
