Here at Corton Primary School, we are committed to PE and Sport and ensure that every child takes part in a full curriculum including indoor and outdoor physical education.
Children have the opportunity to take part in high quality PE lessons based around games, gymnastics, dance, and athletics. PE lessons are differentiated to ensure they are accessible to all ages and abilities, including catering for the gifted and talented and that the needs of all children are met. Throughout their time in the school, children will also have the opportunity to take part in outdoor and adventurous activities in lessons and during a residential visit in KS2, giving children the chance to develop their problem solving skills, independence and social skills.
We continue to offer our children the opportunities to take part in a range of school festivals and competitions, both as individuals and as part of a team. These events include teams representing our school throughout Lowestoft in Tag Rugby, Swimming and Basketball. All children who attend these competitions and events are awarded for their efforts in a celebration assembly with certificates.
To support our curriculum PE timetable, we offer an early morning school sports club that has a high attendance including: Football, Tennis, Hockey, Tag Rugby, plus much more. In addition to this, we run regular sports clubs, children are currently enjoying a dance club. Pupils also receive specialist coaching from outside coaches.
KS2 pupils have swimming lessons. Children are taught to swim a minimum of 25 metres unaided (as well as having a lot of fun!). Children receive certificates as they travel through each progressive stage. The most important learning that takes place is how to stay safe while having fun in and around water.
