ATTAINMENT IN PE (2017/18)

    Pupils Above the Standard                  76%

 

  1. Attainment in Swimming

Pupils access 15 hours of swimming lessons in Year 4. This age group is specifically targeted as it is a successful age group for converting non-swimmers into swimmers. Swimming is taught in 15 hours over a 15 week period. The rationale behind this is that the extended time in the pool, receiving tuition, alongside constant lessons (week after week) has a successful outcome in making sure that all children will learn how to swim 25 metres.

 

The results for the Y4 cohort, of 2017/18, are as follows:

 

Pupils able to swim 25m                                             83%

Pupils using a range of strokes effectively                  76%

Pupils able to perform Self Rescue*                            76%

 

*Self Rescue skills in a range of different water based situations
