Our Vision at Corporation Road
At Corporation Road Community Primary School, we believe that physical education and sport have a vital role to play in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of children. Physical education and sport are important in giving children the knowledge, understanding and tools to make informed choices about healthy living and well-being. Our PE curriculum aims to provide opportunities for pupils to increase self-confidence through being able to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations. Children will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities, carried out in a safe and supportive environment. Effort and hard-work, as well as success, is celebrated and enjoyment and working cooperatively is promoted.

End Points of the PE Map
Our children understand that regular exercise contributes to leading a healthy lifestyle. They understand that regular exercise can not only impact the healthiness of our bodies but also our minds.
Our children participate non-competitively as well as competitively in a variety of sports, showing an awareness of the rules.
Our children can evaluate their own and the performances of others.
Our children are performing PE skills with fluency and are able to transfer these across different sports and draw upon them when participating in other sporting opportunities.
Pupils should be taught:
- master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities

- use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
