Physical Education

Our Vision

Physical Education plays a vital role in the physical, mental, social and emotional development of young people. Our high quality physical education program, delivered within all LET schools, aims to inspire lifelong participation in physical activity and develop an interest and knowledge in health and wellbeing. Schemes of work are carefully planned, to ensure lessons are accessible, enjoyable, interesting and challenging for all students, regardless of their ability levels. We are continuing to develop our teaching to be underpinned by metacognitive behaviours, encouraging and facilitating all students to take ownership of their own learning. This is done through modelling, metacognitive talk, appropriate challenge, effective use of vocabulary and feedback, questioning, independent practice and retrieval. The ethos within Physical Education is to promote learning experiences that prioritise high activity levels and develop a passion for physical activity alongside a deep understanding of health and fitness. We are research orientated and have a strong focus on the importance and benefits of physical activity and the long term health implications of inactivity and sedentary lifestyles in an effort to combat the national problem of physical inactivity and overweight children and young people, which has been exacerbated by the Covid ’19 pandemic (DCMS, 2017).
