Local School Swim Lessons

Why is school swimming so important? Because drowning is the third most common cause of accidental death in children.

School swimming is the one and only opportunity for all children to learn to swim and know how to be safe in and around water.

The chances are, children who don’t learn to swim during school lessons, may never learn this lifesaving skill.


The Department for Education state that all primary schools must provide swimming and water safety instruction in Key Stage 1 or 2.

Swimming is the only statutory sport within the Physical Education (PE) programme of study and in particular, pupils should be taught to:

  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations.

  • 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.

 

Our Swim Team are passionate about teaching this essential life skill and we will work closely with you towards the National Curriculum aims.
