Swimming:National Curriculum requirements

Please Make sure your children have their swimming kits in school every Monday.

This is what we are required to provide and support children with:

Maintained schools must provide swimming instruction either in Key Stage (KS) 1 or KS2, according to the National Curriculum framework (page 262).

This includes teaching pupils 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
