Physical Education

At Coton CE (VC) Primary School, we aim to provide our children with the keys they need to flourish in P.E. It is our intent that all children will be ‘lifelong participants’ in sport with the skills and abilities to apply their learning to a range of sporting activities. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age is key to a lifetime habit of participation. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in Physical Education and in developing life skills. We endeavour to introduce children to a wide range of sports, provided in a safe and supportive environment, so that they can find the activity that appeals to them in order that they can pursue it beyond their time in school, promoting a healthier future lifestyle. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe such as being able to swim. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. As a school, we share the vision that Physical Education is vital for children’s physical health as well as their mental health. We aim to make Physical Education enjoyable and accessible to all children regardless of ability and gender. We intend to offer Coton pupils access to a wide range of equipment that will be fun to use and a variety of sports to participate in. Coton is actively engaged with the South Cambridgeshire School Sports Partnership, facilitating a host of opportunities for all children to participate in physical activity and, for those ready for competitive experiences, opportunities to compete against other schools. Through Physical Education and physical activities, we hope to improve the lives of the pupils at Coton and expose them to as much participation in sport as possible.
