The National Curriculum states that...


"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"


With that in mind, here are the percentages of children in our current Year 6 class who have met the expected standard...


1.      79% of Year 6 pupils can swim 25m or more
2.      75% of pupils can swim a range of strokes
3.      34 completed their personal survival assessment
4.      100% of pupils passed poolside rescue which includes Reach and Rescue  and Safety in outdoor water
