We are thrilled to announce that Rossett Acre have been awarded the Bronze Youth Sport trust quality mark.  This new accreditation has allowed us to carefully assess our provision and outcomes in physical education and school sport. It will also help us to identify the schools priorities for the future and we are aiming to achieve Silver in next school year!

Monitoring of PE, sport and physical activity at Rossett Acre in the academic year 2014-2015:

In order to monitor children’s engagement in PE and sport in school, a PE tracker has been set up to track participation in school sports (both clubs and competitive sporting events).


This has shown us that:

52% of KS2 children participated in ONE OR MORE extra-curricular sporting clubs or events during the Autumn term.


A number of children in years 5 and 6 were also invited, and attended, Gifted and Talented and Leadership academies on offer through the Harrogate Schools Sports partnership.  Further information, including impact, will be detailed on the Spring term sports funding report document at the end of the term.  The leadership academy targeted member of the school sports ‘Crew’ to prepare them to plan and lead intra-sporting events in school.


A survey of parent was undertaken at the end of the Autumn term 2014, with a total of 131 responses received, thank you to those parents who took the time to respond

Results we positive and parents spoke highly of their children’s views of PE and sport in school.

Overall, 85% of the respondents said YES, their child enjoys PE.

85% said their child participates in sports outside of school.

74% of children have attended a school sports club (primarily in KS2).
