AfPE Award with Distinction

Irlam Endowed Primary School’s excellent PE and Sports Activity provision has had a lot of recognition recently. We were the first Primary School in Salford to be awarded the Silver Kitemark, quickly followed by the Gold level. Now this term, we have received a prestigious award that has only been awarded to a handful of Primary Schools nationally.

The AfPE (Association for Physical Education) has a post-Olympic Legacy award that is extremely difficult to achieve. It involves a long process of self-evaluation reflecting on what we offer and the impact it has on the children in our school. In April, AfPE spent two days in the school validating and monitoring the application we made. The two inspectors from AfPE were extremely complimentary about the quality of PE teaching and sports activities which happen at Irlam Endowed. They also agreed with us regarding the large impact they make on the lives of our children.

One of the inspectors also met with our Pupil Sports Council representatives and were even more complimentary about the children, and the answers that they gave him.

Not only is it difficult to achieve the award, but the top level of the award is even harder to achieve. 47 schools in Britain have achieved this award, of which only 11 are Primary Schools. In Greater Manchester, only 2 schools have achieved the award (1 in Bolton and 1 in Trafford). We are the first Salford school to achieve the afPE award with Distinction.

It is an award we should be immensely proud of. It shows that the PE programme we have in place for the children of Irlam Endowed is a highly effective one. It emphasises that the teaching of PE is very good and the children’s achievement and performance within their PE lessons and in competition is outstanding.

We would like to share a link to a letter confirming the award.


We also received some nice words from Dean Gilmore who is the PDM of School Sports Partnerships in Salford.


Quote From Dean Gilmore:

‘Can I please add to the congratulations for the school gaining the AfPE Quality Mark with Distinction Award – a first for Salford!

Although I know that you would never under-estimate what is required to be recognised in this way, very few schools are given the highest award and it is a recognition of how the whole school contributes to the physical well-being of your pupils.

I’d also like to thank you. I’ve always held the belief that schools that value PE tend to have a Head teacher that values PE, not as an ‘add-on’, or as a curriculum necessity, but for everything the subject can bring to young people and to the school community.

I have said it many times before and I am sure I will repeat it in the future but the youngsters at Irlam Endowed –whether ultra competitive themselves or there just to be part of the team, always without exception conduct themselves in an exemplary manner at our events – win, lose or draw.’


I think the words from Dean sum up the attitudes and skills that will be invaluable to our children as they grow up, and enter the world of work and careers.
