Swimming is an essential skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. All local authority schools must provide swimming in either key stage one of key stage two.
The program of study for PE sets out the expectations that pupils should be taught to;
- Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 m.
- Use a range of strokes effectively for example front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke.
- Perform safe self rescue in different water-based situations.
Swimming is currently enjoyed by our Year 4 class on a Thursday 14:00-14:30.
