P.E. Vision

Our vision at Canvey Junior School is to ensure all children enjoy and develop positive attitudes to Physical Education and sport.

Through Physical Education and sport we aim to:

  • Improve fitness, health and well-being.
  • Provide opportunities to develop sportsmanship through healthy competition.
  • Promote active participation and lifelong learning.
  • Allow each child to fulfil their potential.


Canvey Junior School in Canvey Island has been awarded the Youth Sport Trust GOLD 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.

Canvey Junior School has been recognised for the outstanding leadership in PE and School Sports. 

Schools are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold status, which reflects their 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 their self-review.

Karen Tucker, Headteacher,  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.”


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

“Congratulations to Canvey Junior 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.”
