Swimming

Swimming is not only a vital life skill, it is also a compulsory part of the National Curriculum.

All children by the end of Key Stage 2 should be able 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

We have increased the amount of time dedicated to the school swimming programme this year. All Year 4 children will swim an hour a day for two weeks and in Year 5 all children swim an hour a day for one week. In Year 6, children who have not reached the National Curriculum standard will receive another 5 hours of swimming.
