SWIMMING 2019 to 20

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.
