2018 / 2019 Gold School Games Mark Award


At South Molton Community Primary School we are very excited to announce that, once again, the school has been awarded the Gold School Games Mark Award for commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport in 2018-19. 
Our provision of three hours of timetabled PE and extracurricular sport and/or health-related clubs exceeded the strict criteria of the award. 

We have a very high percentage of pupils taking part or competing in sport or physical activity every week with personal challenges for each pupil being achieved through QuadKids, whole school or class competitions.

Physical Education is now delivered as part of Health and Wellbeing within the Curriculum for Excellence. High Quality Physical Education (PE) is essential for improving and maintaining the health and wellbeing of all pupils.

PE should:  

  • teach pupils how to move well and be active 
  • challenge and motivate pupils and help them build resilience
  • offer a variety of experiences in learning in physical education
  • build and develop pupils’ skills and knowledge as part of lifelong learning. 


Below are some examples of PE activities at South Molton Community Primary.
