Swimming

Year 4 children have swimming and water safety lessons which are part of the National Curriculum. Each class has 1 lesson a week, over the course of 1 term. 

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

Covid has impacted our swimming lessons during the academic year 2019/2020. Our most recent figures are for academic year 2018/2019 were 40 pupils out of 65 (61.5%) met the standards required.
