Swimming and water safety

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

In particular, 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

At Barrow Hill Primary Academy, children attend weekly swimming sessions in Year 4, 5 & 6. We use resources at the Healthy Living Centre at Staveley. 

In 2018, all pupils in Year 6 (8 pupils) left being able to swim competently.
