Chirton Primary

Swimming

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.

All children swim for 10 weeks at Devizes Leisure Centre, our first lesson will be on 20th April 2018.
