Swimming Report

Swimming is an important, life saving skill that encourages a healthy and active lifestyle. In accordance with the National Curriculum, we provide swimming instructions; St. Stephen’s pupils have their swimming lessons in Year 4.

 

The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively (e.g. front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke)
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
