PE, Sport, Health and Wellbeing

Hill View School in Banbury has been awarded the Youth Sport Trust Silver Quality Mark for its commitment to physical education (PE) and school sport at their school. The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity that is building 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 award for the quality of their PE and school sport. The tool supports schools to audit their PE provision and identify priorities for their development.

Schools are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold status, which reflects their efforts in using PE and school sport to raise achievement across the school

Mrs  Ferens said:

“We are absolutely thrilled 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 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.”

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

“Congratulations to Hill View 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.”

Hill View children

At Hill View School children in Y6 (95% of children were measured) and Foundation Stage (99.1% of children were measured) are measured as part of the National Child Measurement Programme.

The proportion of Year 6 children who were overweight or obese (38.6%) is statistically similar compared to other schools across England (34%). 30% of Year 6 children were overweight or obese in Oxfordshire.

The proportion of Foundation Stage children who were overweight or obese (18.7%) is statistically similar is statistically similar compared to other schools across England (22%). 19% of Foundation Stage children were overweight or obese in Oxfordshire.

Evidence shows that children who are overweight or obese are highly likely to continue this into their adult life and have far higher chances of long term health difficulties. We are shocked by the proportion of overweight obese children we have at the school and aim to reduce this through education, promoting healthy eating and providing active opportunities for all.
