Youth Sport Trust

Hornton Primary School is a member of the Youth Sport Trust and in May 2014 achieved the 'Silver Quality Mark'. This is in recognition of our excellent provision for PE and School Sport. We are very proud that our efforts to continue to deliver high quality sport and PE have been recognised at a national level. 

The Youth Sport Trust is an independent charity devoted to changing young people's lives through sport. Established in 1994, they are passionate about helping all young people to achieve their full potential in life by delivering high quality physical education and sport opportunities.

They work to:

  • give every child a sporting start in life through high quality PE and sport in primary schools;
  • ensure all young people have a sporting chance by developing opportunities for those with special educational needs and disabilities; and
  • support all young people to achieve their sporting best in school and their personal best in life.

Their values, which are built on trust, integrity, working in partnership and responsibility, run across all of their work - be that with schools, our corporate partners, government, sporting organisations and, most importantly, young people.

Using the power of PE and sport in an international context, the Youth Sport Trust strives to increase the opportunities that all young people have to learn through PE and sport and to realise their potential in a global society. They foster international relationships to enhance and extend the quality and breadth of our development work in PE and sport: creating international opportunities for young people, seeking best practice to transform school sport and gaining enhanced international understanding which will inform how we engage diverse ethnic minority groups in the UK context.

The Youth Sport Trust has driven many of the improvements over the last decade in PE and school sport and is continuously looking at new ways on inspire young people to participate, compete, volunteer and officiate in sport.
