At Earl Soham Community Primary School we encourage children to enjoy sport, building skills and confidence and fostering a life long love of exercise.
Through our curriculum we allow our children to experience a wide variety of activities and different sports. When possible we invite coaches from local clubs and organisations to give the children the opportunity to experience new sports and more importantly to have the opinion of joining a local club, encouraging them to participate in sport outside school. Visits have included, golf, tennis and cricket coaches. We also take advantage of the sporting skills of our wider community.
We celebrate achievement of our pupils beyond school, encouraging them to bring in certificates and awards to be shared in our school Celebration assemblies. Our aim is to encourage all sport and physical activity both in school and beyond.
We are fortunate to have access to a swimming pool close to the school and all year groups from Year 2 upwards are given the opportunity to learn to swim. We see swimming as a valuable skill to be learnt and enjoyed.
