At Marjory Kinnon School we believe physical education (PE) and 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 and 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.
PE & Sport Premium
We welcomed the Government's announcement in June 2013 of additional funding to improve provision of PE and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource for the development of high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our pupils.

PE and Sport Premium Improvement Plan 2019/20
From April 2018, 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 25m; use a range of strokes effectively; and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Pupils at Marjory Kinnon School have moderate to 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.
