Swimming in 2018 - 2019

 

The children in Year 2 will again receive weekly swimming instruction at Southglade Leisure Centre in the summer term. The half hour sessions will be taught by instructors from the LEA to provide high quality teaching. The children will develop their water safety skills and confidence in and around water in addition to learning specific strokes. Staff from Henry Whipple Primary School will provide additional supervision during the sessions. Assessment will take place in the final session of the teaching block.

 

Children in Year 6 also will receive swimming instruction in the summer term to further develop their water safety skills, proficiency in a range of strokes and ability to swim 25m. Assessment will take place in the final week of the summer term, and the % of children able to swim 25m will be published on the website.

 

 

 

 Provision in 2017 - 2018:

Swimming sessions have been provided for the children in Year 2 in the summer term this year. By providing the children in this year group with a prolonged block of provision, we aim to significantly increase their swimming and water safety skills and to increase their confidence in and around water before they reach KS2. The weekly, half hour sessions are taught by coaches provided by the LEA. School staff  provide additional supervision during the sessions and observe the coaching as part of their CPD. The children's swimming ability is assessed during the first session to allow them to be placed into differentiated groups working in a water depth that they are comfortable with. Assessment also takes place during the final session to confirm levels of improvement and the achievement of awards.

 

Year 6 have also received swimming instruction in the summer term. This is to improve their water safety skills, proficiency in a range of strokes and ability to swim 25m.
