Swimming

The National Curriculum requires that schools:

..... provide swimming instruction either in KS1 or KS2.

In particular, pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m;
  • use a range of strokes effectively, e.g. front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke;

perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

The school has a weekly swimming session at Pewsey Vale Leisure Centre during Terms 2,3 and 4.

In 2021-22 Years 4 and 5 will be swimming.

The cost of the swimming instructors, the lifeguard and the hire of the pool are funded by the school but we do ask parents for a voluntary donation which goes towards the cost of transport to the pool.
