At MKS we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
Through PE & Sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and academic achievement.
We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for 2 years to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

PE and Sport Premium Report.
For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, schools are required to publish how many pupils within their year 6 cohort meet the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres; use a range of strokes effectively; and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.Pupils at Marjory Kinnon School have moderate or severe learning difficulties, many with a diagnosis of Autism. All children undertake swimming lessons in accordance with national curriculum requirements, however the nature of their learning difficulties limits their ability to achieve national standards. In our current Year 6 cohort:Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming, for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. We have not used this option.
