Prestigious Sport Award for CAN

City Academy Norwich is celebrating after becoming the second Norfolk secondary school in five years to achieve the prestigious afPE (Association for Physical Education) quality mark for PE and school sport. The award is the bench mark and industry standard for high quality PE provision.

Created in 2013, the quality mark is awarded to schools after a rigorous self-review and independent evaluation process, which measures the strength and quality of PE and sport within the academy.

The Association for Physical Education said:

  • The academy is on a journey where rapid progress is being made. The PE department is doing an exceptional job in supporting its pupils. It knows where it is, what it needs to do to continue to improve, and has a very strong ethos and vision
  • Leadership and management of the subject is outstanding and there is a consistency of approach to planning, delivery and assessment
  • The award of Quality Mark recognises the incredible progress that the staff and pupils have made, over the last two years in particular
  • With the ambitious target of creating world class PE, sport and physical activity provision and many developments in the pipeline, it will be exciting to see how far CAN can go over the next three years!

Mr Moggan, director of sport at CAN, said, “We are delighted to have achieved the afPE quality mark; it is recognition of the fantastic progress the school has made in this area over the last three years, following the result of a lot of hard work from students and staff alike. We have ambitious plans over the next three years to develop our provision further to improve life chances for every single young person at CAN through PE and school sport.
