Swimming Review 2019-2020

 

The National Curriculum states:

All schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2.

In particular, pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations’.

 

At our school, every pupil receives swimming instruction for 9 weeks during Year 3.  Pupils then receive a further 9 weeks of swimming instruction during Year 4 at The Rebecca Adlington Swimming Centre.

 

Whilst many of our children are experienced and proficient swimmers, the following table aims to show the statutory requirements achieved by our current Year 6 cohort.
