Corefulness® In Schools Programme

& Becoming a Pilot School

Corefulness® can be integrated into daily school life as part of the P.E. programme and as a short, fun 5 minute “Ready to Work” session. It can help a child strengthen and improve control of their body as they grow, as well as use the correct muscles when they take part in sport. Please get in touch to discuss how we can support you to introduce Corefulness® into your school and help your children build inner strength.

  • help to improve energy and increase concentration

  • minimise potential future injuries

  • progressive customised programmes for different Key Stages

  • easy to follow videos to integrate Corefulness® into daily school life and activities

Why Corefulness® in Schools?

Research has shown that physical exercise can enhance the learning process. If children undertake just a few minutes of specific sensory and motor training prior to sitting down to engage their brain for learning, then learning outcomes improve.

We are all born with reflexes in our body, called primitive reflexes, which are used throughout infancy and beyond. Some of these reflexes are lost as we develop and this process has to occur in order for our bodies and brains to mature correctly. In some children this loss of primitive reflexes is delayed and this can slow the ability of a child to integrate their body and brain. This can result in slow learning patterns. If the child’s body is encouraged to move through certain patterns then the primitive reflexes can be lost and therefore their learning potential is maximised.

Corefulness® in Schools Program

Key Stage One (YR - Y2)

Corefulness® in schools during the early years, focuses on vital movement patterns and exercises that can be integrated into both the classroom and P.E lessons.

Key Stage Two (Y3 - Y6)

Corefulness® in schools at Key Stage 2 focuses on the development of awareness and the strengthening of the four key core muscles within the body, along with important stretching and balance work. Correct postural development and strengthening is vital as a child grows to support the body.

In this Key Stage, the programme provides formal teaching of the correct running technique to ensure alignment and stability during an activity used on a daily basis. The classroom programmes stimulate the body and mind which aids concentration during lessons.

Key Stage Three (Y7 - Y9)

During Key Stage 3 many children experience their largest growth spurt. Corefulness® in schools will support children and provide them with the tools to maintain flexibility and boost stability in the classroom as well as minimise the potential of adolescent musculoskeletal problems due to lack of correct warm up and weakness on the games field. Children will learn how to progress their running technique as a life-long skill.

Key Stage Four (Y10 - Y11)

Corefulness® for Key Stage 4 recognises that children will be encouraged to develop independent learning skills as they prepare for GCSEs. Corefulness® can not only be used in the classroom setting and during formal P.E lessons but also as a resource for students as they work independently. Children will be able to access ergonomic advice which can be applied in their different working environments, as well as gain advice regarding independent physical training with age appropriate video-based exercise regimes.

Key Stage Five (Y12 - Y13)

As young adults, Corefulness® recognises the need to develop skills for life. At this Stage, the programme provides access to resources regarding physical training, injury awareness and prevention, diet, health and posture. They can access video based exercise regimes with correct warm up and stretching for core control, running, weight training, body toning, circuit training etc.

Corefulness® in Schools will ensure school leavers are equipped with the resources to maximise their individual potential both physically and emotionally whilst being provided with the gift to develop a life-long love of exercise and well being.

BECOMING A PILOT SCHOOL

We would be delighted to work with schools in both the state and private sector.

Becoming a pilot school can commence during a school year and can be incorporated easily within the existing school timetable.
