Swimming & Water Safety

Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle.

All Local Authority schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2.

The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
