Savile Park Primary School

Headteacher: Mrs J Boylan

Swimming and Water Safety

All schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2.

In particular, pupils should be taught to:

  • 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

Children at Savile Park Primary School have the opportunity to take part in an extensive programme of swimming lessons to enable them to meet the end of KS2 National Curriculum requirements.

At present we offer swimming lessons to all of our Year 4 and Year 5 pupils.

55% of our children last year achieved level 4 or above and passed their 25m swimming certificate.
