For the year 2022-23 academic year, schools are required to publish how many pupils within their Year 6 cohort are meeting the national swimming curriculum requirement. Children should be able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, using a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations.
SJV Swimming Performance
This year we have only 2 pupils who are at the end of Year 6. Despite weekly swim lessons in the local pool at Stretford none of the 2 can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. They are both working towards this benchmark.
They were unable to use a range of strokes effectively or perform safe self-rescue. The pupils will continue with their swim programme in the next year as part of their PE programme of activity. The instructors will continue to support them in aiming for the national swimming expectations.
