Swimming at St Teresa's

Swimming and water safety is an extremely important part of the PE curriculum at St Teresa’s and another way of helping children to lead healthy and active lives. Throughout the 2017-18 academic year, pupils in Year 5 attend swimming lessons at Hatch End Swimming Pool once a week.

 

From 2018-19 swimming will take place once per week for pupils in Year 4.  Those children in Years 5 and 6 who are not able to swim at least 25 metres will attend ‘top-up’ swimming lessons in the Autumn term alongside Year 4. Our aim is to ensure that nearly every pupil leaving St Teresa’s can reach the National requirement by the end of Year 6.

 

Pupils are grouped according to their ability and are 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.

Have we used 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.
