The National Curriculum requires that schools:

  • provide swimming instruction either in KS1 or KS2.

In particular, pupils should be taught to:

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

The school has a weekly swimming session at Pewsey Vale Leisure Centre throughout the year in 2023-24

This year 

Class 5 and Y5s from Class 6 will swim terms 1 and 2

Classes 3 and 4 will swim terms 3 and 4

Years 2 and 3 will swim terms 5 and 6

The cost of the swimming instructors, the lifeguard and the hire of the pool are funded by the school, but we do ask parents for a voluntary donation which goes towards the cost of transport to the pool.
