Katherine Semar Receive the Sportsmark for 2007/8


We are very proud to announce that Katherine Semar Junior School has achieved the Sportsmark status. All schools are now automatically assessed for one of the marks through the national school sport survey, which all School Sport Partnership schools take part in.   

Schools qualify for the Sportsmark if:

  • The percentage of pupils participating in at least 2 hours high quality PE and school sport each week is significantly above the national average; and
  • the school held a sports day; and
  • the school met or bettered the national average in three or more of the following areas;
    • percentage of pupils taking part in inter-school competitive sport;
    • the range of sports the school offers;
    • the percentage of pupils participating in sports clubs linked to their school; or
    • the percentage of pupils actively involved in sports leadership and volunteering.

      We are pleased that our P.E. provision is recognised as being better than national averages and continue to develop a comprehensive sports programme for our pupils.
