Swimming

Usually pupils receive swimming instruction in Year 3 and Year 4 but, due to school closure due the Covid-19 pandemic, the priority was for Year 6 in the academic year of 2020-21 once pools were opened and school swimming resumed in the Summer term of 2021.

Historic data:

At the end of 2018-19 academic year, 89% (33/37) Year 6 pupils could confidently swim 25 metres and use a range of strokes effectively. 81% (30/37) could perform safe self-rescue in a range of water-based situations.

We have no information for 2019-20 academic year due to the Covid-19 school closure.

Present data:

In 2020-21 all pupils in Year 6 and some in Year 5 went swimming.

At the end of 2020-21 academic year, 80% (37/47) of Year 6 pupils could confidently swim 25 metres and use a range of strokes effectively.  72% (34/47) could perform safe self-rescue in a range of water-based situations.
