PE at Landywood
As part of our broad and balanced curriculum, our sporting provision encourages children to become independent, determined and resilient learners. We are encouraging children to be healthy and active and to develop a lifelong sporting passion. This is all promoted through our successful PE curriculum, which is taught by our dedicated Sports Teacher. We offer the chance to participate in lunchtime and after school clubs and for KS2 to take part in inter-school competitions. Weekly PE lessons enable children to be active and improve their mental and physical well-being. An action-packed annual Sports Week is also held to fully immerse children in a variety of sports. Our extended PE opportunities gives pupils the chance to create lasting memories and inspire them to take part in, and spectate, a wider range of sports. We view sport as a tool to boost children’s confidence and break down barriers. It encourages teamwork, class togetherness and morale.
PE outside of the lesson
We host an action-packed week to fully participate and engage in sport, nutrition and well-being sessions. Activities include intra-school football, cricket and rounders tournaments, outside clubs delivering yoga, dance and football sessions, mindfulness and nutrition focus activities, multi-skills competitions, visits from key sporting figures, hockey and dodgeball sessions, a disabled golf demonstration and a traditional Sports Day.
As active participants in the South Staffs School Partnership, our KS2 children are selected to take part in a range of inter-school competitions.
