Swimming Data

In the academic year 2017/2018, there was a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their Year 4 cohort are meeting the National Curriculum requirement in swimming.

The National Curriculum states that ‘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 a safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.’
