PE Quality Mark
In July 2014 Southwater Junior Academy became the first primary or junior school in the whole of West Sussex to be awarded the AFPE Quality Mark for PE.The Association for Physical Education (afPE) is the only physical education subject association in the UK. We were awarded this fantastic achievement as recognition of the great work our pupils' and teachers' do on a daily basis, to ensure the highest level of PE, range of activities, sport, competition and extra curricular clubs that are provided at SJA.
Following the Sports Premium payment, provided by government specifically for PE, we have employed our own, full-time PE Instructor, Mr Paul Showell to work alongside our PE Co-ordinator, Mrs Laura Bamber. This has had an immense impact on provision, leading to SJA being recognised as one of the top providers of high quality PE and sport in West Sussex.

Mr Showell leads the majority of PE lessons, teaching various games in a ‘skills led’ format. Along with Miss Marriott, he works with teachers to ensure high quality PE teaching throughout the school. This provision is for all pupils regardless of ability and a system of assessment is being put into place to ensure that all children are enjoying and improving in every field of sport.
