School swimming lessons

We use Swim England's School Swimming and Water Safety Charter as this gives us a framework on which we deliver the lessons.

The Charter has been designed to support schools and lesson providers in helping pupils reach the national curriculum standards by the end of Key Stage 2.

It includes water safety, core aquatic skills and the three national curriculum PE swimming outcomes.

Our aim is to provide all schools with an assurance that all swimming instructors are qualified to an appropriate standard providing quality instruction and experience for all pupils.

All lessons will be safeguarded by independent lifeguards or swimming instructors holding appropriate pool lifeguard qualifications or swimming rescue test qualifications.
