Swimming at Weston-on-Trent C.E. (Aided) Primary 

 

Children at Weston-on-Trent take part in swimming as part of their P.E. curriculum.

 

Year 3: Children in Year 3 have swimming lessons for two terms (Autumn and Spring).

 

Year 6: Children in Year 6 have swimming lessons  from Easter until the end of the Summer term.

 

By splitting the swimming over two separate blocks we help our children meet the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

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. Did we use it in this way?
