Swimming Competency

Year 6 Swimming Competency

 

Percentage of pupils within our 2018-19 Year 6 cohort that can do each of the following:

 

Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres

76%

Use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl,

backstroke and breaststroke)

96%

Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

96%

 

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. We have not used it in this way, but this is being considered for this year’s allocation.

Children at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School attend swimming lessons within Years 3 and 4 at Maltman’s Green pool facilities.  This information relates to our Year 6 pupils, who were tested in the summer term 2019.
