- Money

- Families

- Identity and community

- Safety

- Thinking for myself

- Democracy

- Globalisation

- Self-image

Physical Education

As a school, we place great value on physical education. We have a specialist PE teacher and all children have access to high quality PE lessons with this teacher every week covering a range of sports, gymnastics, dance and athletics. Year 4 also go swimming at Willesden Sports Centre and we have a significant wider offer of sports clubs and enrichment activities. Our annual Sports Day is a highlight of the school calendar for many children!

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Week

This has become an important part of the JK calendar. Each year the PSEPD JLT plan a week of events and activities helping us to learn about and focus on our physical and mental health. In the past these have included a whole-school dance class, breakfast on the playground, a smoothie bike, creating a John Keble recipe book and making leaflets for our parents about the importance of sleep!
