All children in Key Stage Two (Years 3 to 6) have the opportunity to take part in a programme of swimming lessons to enable them to meet the end of Key Stage Two National Curriculum requirements as part of the Physical Education Programme of Study.
We are fortunate to have Church Farm Leisure Centre a short walk from school. The children are fully supervised by school staff during ‘school only’ swimming lessons (the pool is closed to the public at this time).
Our aim (by the end of Year 6) is for as many children as possible to be able to:
Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
Use a range of strokes effectively
Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
