During the Summer Term we make full use of our heated outdoor swimming pool as part of our P.E. curriculum, so your child will need a costume, towel and a suitable bag. Goggles can be used in the pool. It is advised that verrucae should be covered and long hair (both boys’ and girls’) must be tied back or plaited.
It is important that every item of your child’s property is named.
Meeting National Curriculum Requirements for Swimming and Water Safety
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)?
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?
Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?
Yes. On-site swimming pool maintenance enables all children to have additional swimming lessons.
