Youth Sports Trust GOLD Quality Mark



The Shrubbery School has been awarded the Youth Sport Trust GOLD Quality Mark for its commitment to physical education (PE) and school sport at its school. 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.

Mr Griffin (Head of PE, Sport and Physical Activity Lead), said:

 “We are absolutely thrilled to have been awarded the GOLD 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 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.”

The Shrubbery School see’s Physical Education, Physical Activity and School Sport as a driving force to the development of the whole child, the school consistently participates in over 20 level 1 completions and 30 level 2 competitions each academic year. Further more we have competed in the Birmingham Level 3 school games for the past 3 years. It is not just school sport that the school has huge success with. We also run over 15 extra curricular clubs as well as several leadership programs for our children. We have also recently further developed our whole school PE curriculum with the integration of real PE. 

Schools are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold status, which reflects its efforts in using PE and school sport to raise achievement across the school. When a school is awarded the Gold Quality Mark, the Youth Sport Trust will visit the school and validate its self-review.

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

“Congratulations to The Shrubbery School for achieving the Youth Sport Trust GOLD 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.”
