Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that 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.

 

 

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.  (Cohort of 29 pupils)

% of cohort that swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres

 27/29 = 93%

% of cohort that use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]

27/29= 93%

% that can perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations

25/29= 86%

Additional provision- top up swimming sessions funded by Sport Premium

 

Provide additional top-up swimming lessons to pupils who have not been able to meet the 3 national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety - after the delivery of core swimming and water safety lessons.

9/29 pupils required extra swimming provision after their core swimming course.

 

Of those 9 pupils,

7/9 gained their 25m and effective strokes

 

5/9 gained their water safety

 

1/9 pupils and parents refused to attend the sessions each week.
