Year 6 Swimming

Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. All Local Authority schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2. The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that 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.

 

Swimming and Water Safety 

• What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 76%

• What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 72%

• What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 68 %

• 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

25 children in year 6 are competent to swim 25 metres, use a range of different strokes and demonstrate a safe self-rescue in the water.  The pupils were able to demonstrate their ability to swim by participating in a week of sailing during the summer term.
