At Bill Quay, we firmly believe in the importance and value of developing skills in swimming, not just for health and enjoyment but also because we know that these skills could one day be life-saving. For most of the school year, our Year 4 children receive specialist swimming lessons at Heworth Leisure Centre. The final half-term of the year focuses on intensively improving swimming skills for those KS2 pupils who have not yet met the required government standards.
We are required to report on the number of current Y6 pupils who can:
2018-19 Y6 Cohort:
By July 2019, 26/30 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.
23/30 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively.
22/30 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
2019-20 Y6 Cohort:
As of September 2019, 20/29 pupils can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.
20/29 pupils can use a range of strokes effectively.
18/29 pupils can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Our current Y6 cohort will be reassessed before Christmas 2019 so that we can update their progress and identify those pupils who might need additional swimming sessions to help them to reach the required standards.
