Active Essex and the Chelmsford School Sports Partnership are pleased that the government announced a significant boost to funding for PE and Sport in our primary schools by extending the Primary Sport Premium.

This funding has been used across the county to enhance the provision and quality of PE and school sport within our schools.

Until now there has been no vehicle by which to officially recognise excellence in delivery of school sport and physical education at Key Stage 1. We are therefore very pleased to offer that schools can now make an online application to be considered for the KS1 Physical Education & Activity Mark.

Applications will be assessed by a panel assembled by Chelmsford School Sport Partnership and Active Essex, and may include a verification visit by a relevant member.

Schools can apply for the KS1 Awards at any time of year.  The award presentation ceremonies will be made in April/November and will then be valid for 2 years.
