Swimming

As of the 2017-18 school year, schools are now required 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.

 

 “Learning about water safety and knowing how to keep yourself safe in and around water is a life-skill and as such, should be recognised and measured in the same ways as other key subjects such as maths. Including a condition that ensures swimming and water safety attainment is published will help to show how we can support schools to deliver these vital lessons.” (Swim England)

 

National Curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety: (66 children)

  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • Use a range of strokes effectively
  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
