Swimming

Curriculum Intent

In line with the National Curriculum we aim that by time children finish year 6 they will all be able to do the following:

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

  • use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)

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

Curriculum Implementation

At South Borough our swimming lessons take place in the local swimming pool.  Swimming instructors from the leisure centre provide lessons, which are in line with the national curriculum aims and expectations.  Children in Key Stage 2 are taught blocks of swimming during their time with us.
