Every child in Year 5 and Year 6 take part in swimming lessons in our school.
Year 6 children are expected to be able to:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- perform a safe self-rescue in different water based situations
- use a range of strokes effectively
Our children use Southglade leisure centre for their swimming and are taught by trained instructors at these pools. Over the course of a half term the children receive an hour long lesson each week, building up skills and stamina to be able to achieve the end of KS2 objectives.
We use Sports Premium money to pay for top=up swimming sessions in Summer Term.
