Year 6 Swimming Competency

Percentage of pupils within our 2017-18 Year 6 (19 children) cohort that can do each of the following:

  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres: 100%
  • Use a range of strokes effectively: 95%
  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations: 100%

Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming, but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. We have not used it in this way so far this year, but in the past we have required children to be able to swim to take part in sailing and other water sport activities which have been paid for using the Sport Premium money.

Children at Morgan’s Vale and Woodfalls Primary School attend swimming lessons usually within Years 3 and 4 (or until swimming competency has been achieved) at Forres Sandle Manor School’s outdoor pool in Fordingbridge during Summer and early Autumn terms. This information relates to our current Year 6 cohort from their time in these lessons.
