Swimming and Water Safety

The National Curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety are as follows:

* to be able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres

* use a range of strokes effectively

* perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

At Lisle Marsden C of E Academy swimming lessons take place in Y4. Children are given certificates for their achievements. We aim to use some of the Sports Premium funding to help to support those who haven’t achieved the requirements by Y6. Our results are as follows:

  Achieved 25M
