During the summer term we target those children who cannot swim the National Curriculum measure of 25m. We start with year 6 and then move to year 5. During the academic year 2018-2019, 85% of all year 6 and 5 children could swim 25m and so we offered swimming to non-swimmers in year 4. The strokes taught are front crawl and backstroke.
All key stage two children take part in drowning prevention week. In the water they are taught the HELP position, treading water, jump and swim.
College Street deliver an annual water safety assembly for foundation stage children to year 6.
