Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety 2021-2022
Please complete all of the below:
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres? N.B. Even though your children may swim in another year please report on their attainment on leaving
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?
Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?
Sport & Well Being at St Swithun Wells
Our Sports Curriculum is excellent at our school and we provide the children with a wide range of sporting activities to strengthen their physical education. We work closely with Primary Sporting Development (PSD) who provide bespoke coaching to our children and the development of PE skills for our teachers. Our PSD coach Mr Goodhind, delivers the curriculum to an exceptionally high standard which has enabled outstanding outcomes and achievements for our children.
Sports & Health Weeks
We had an excellent week of sports with such a variety of sporting activities taking place with fun sports days for EYFS, KS1 and KS2. We even learned how to play golf thanks to Mr Talbot (Parent).
National Fitness Days
We learnt how to keep our bodies healthy. After assembly, Year 6 had to prepare an aerobics routine for the whole school. We had 45 minutes to get it perfect. We started with a warm up and finished with some stretches to cool down. It was very successful and the whole school participated, enjoying themselves. Lots of classes did some sporty things throughout the day. For example, Year 6 had a 15 minute jog and Year 2 played some games outside. It was a really fun day. Written by our Sports Captains
Every year we have a Sports and Well-Being Week in June where we have a daily focus on sport and general well-being focusing on a variety of activities and working with each other across the school. Our Sports' Days are an exciting competitive celebration of all that we learn throughout the year. Even the parents get involved! We compete in our houses against each other.
