Swimming and water safety

The importance of teaching children to swim has been recognised within education for some time. The most recent National Curriculum for Schools (2014) has continued to reflect this within the Programme of Study for Physical Education
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
Results for pupils in Year 6 the end of 2017 - 2018: -
  • 100% could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • 100% could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
  • 100% perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
