Swimming Information for Parents
Swim England and members of the Curriculum Swimming and Water Safety Review Group have welcomed new rules that require schools to publish swimming attainment levels. The new condition is part of updated guidance from the Department for Education regarding PE and sport premium funding. From this year, schools will be required to publish how many Year 6 pupils have met the national curriculum requirements relating to swimming and water safety.This change is a direct response to recommendations submitted to government by the Review Group in July and is the first time that schools will be required to publish the data.
In line with these recommendations, we would like to report that all of the current Year 6 pupils (2018-19 cohort) have reached the national curriculum standard and attained their 25 meter certificate. We would like to congratulate them for this achievement and thank all the pool staff, school staff and parent volunteers for their support and dedication in assisting the children to gain this important life skill.
