What is the impact of our physical education curriculum at John Keble? 

Pupils will develop movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They will have been exposed to a wide variety of sports and skills. The pupils will have had the invaluable experience of learning to play within a team environment and be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others). Pupils will feel prepared to attend team trials in their secondary school. Many will have already had the invaluable experience of competition against other schools. 

Pupils will leave school being able to identify and critically appraise a sporting performance using the correct sporting terminology.

As a result, the pupils will leave John Keble School with an understanding and appreciation of the crucial role sport plays in leading a healthy lifestyle. They will also be able to recognise and execute key skills in multiple sporting areas as they will have experienced consistent skill reinforcement throughout their time at primary school.
