Bristol City Community Trust receives AFPE stamp of approval

Bristol City Community Trust has a reason to celebrate after being awarded membership to the Association for Physical Education (AFPE) scheme – the first of all Football League and Premier League football community schemes to achieve this.

AFPE are a quality assurance service within physical education, an that award recognises the Trust as a high-quality PE and School Sport provider.

The Trust supports teaching professionals to achieve the best outcomes for young people, carried out in schools in the greater Bristol region.

The Trust also joins companies such as British Red Cross, Sports Leaders UK and FA Tesco Skills to be one of only 40 providers nationwide to have gained accreditation.

AFPE is the only physical education subject association in the UK and was launched in 2006. Their purpose is to promote and maintain high standards and safe practice in all aspects and at all levels of physical education, influencing developments in physical education at national and local levels.

Amy Kington, director of Bristol City Community Trust, commented: “We have always prided ourselves on being first, best and different and from the moment we learned about AFPE accreditation, we were determined to reach the standards required to achieve business associate membership.

“We are the first Trust in the Country to meet the criteria which is designed to recognise high quality providers who support PE and School Sport professionals to achieve the best outcomes for young people.

“We are committed to raising standards in school sport and AFPE accreditation reassures schools and parents that we are a sports charity that they can trust!”

To see the full extent of our work, the programmes we run for all ages and abilities and how these are helping changing peoples lives, take a look at the Trust website and YouTube page.
