Centre of Excellence for Physical Education

posted 12 May 2017, 07:25 by J Tee
We are extremely pleased to announce that Stocksbridge Junior School is now one of nine schools in Yorkshire that has been selected as a Centre of Excellence for Physical Education (PE). The PE department applied for this status in November 2016, showing evidence of high quality PE and learning in lessons, providing an extensive extra-curricular programme (including Y6 sports leaders) and entering a wide range of sporting competitions. Evidence was also linked to a very successful PE network meeting at the start of the academic year, which was held at Stocksbridge Junior School. This event included PE lead teachers from 17 schools from Locality G, with the aim of improving teaching and learning in PE. The PE department have also been providing high quality continued professional development (CPD) for teaching staff at Stocksbridge, which has been extremely rewarding. Furthermore, the PE team have led seminars at Sheffield Hallam University to inspire primary PGCE students. Stocksbridge Junior School will obtain funding linked to this award and Yorkshire Sport will be using our PE team to improve the quality of primary school PE in Yorkshire. We would like to thank all staff and parents for your continued support.
