What does PE look like at Landgate?

Within our school PE is the most diverse and cross-curricular lesson that all our children can engage within. Our PE sessions encourage psychomotor learning in a play or movement exploration setting to promote health, develop physical fitness and the ability to perform and enjoy day-to-day physical activities with ease. Learners also develop skills necessary to participate in a wide range of activities including swimming, games, gymnastics, dance, outdoor education and fundamentals. Weekly PE sessions prepare learners to be physically and mentally active, fit, and healthy. Sessions are developed to help students develop social skills, for example, team sports help them learn to respect others; contribute to a team goal and socialise as a productive member of a team. PE contributes to each child’s total growth and development.
