Swimming- SWIM!

Our children learn to swim in the summer term of Year 3. Because we recognise the importance of swimming, we revisit swimming lessons again in Year 6, as part of CLASP. 

Our Year 6 pupil' will be attending swimming lessons in the Summer term. You will get a letter at the start of the school year confirming what dates your child will be going. 

Please ensure you child brings their kit each week so they can maximise this learning opportunity. 

Why your child should learn to swim?

Swimming is really important, not only is it a fun sport, which keeps your child's heart and lungs healthy but it is an essential life-saving skill.

It opens the door to many other different sports: if your child can swim they can also try...

Kayaking, canoeing, surfing and triathlons to name a few!

Swimming and water safety

It is a National Curriculum requirement that KS2 pupils are able to swim. 

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
