swimming pool

The National Curriculum for Physical Education states that all schools must provide swimming instruction either in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2. 

Pupils should be taught to 

  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • Use a range of strokes effectively (such as front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)
  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

At Newlands Spring Primary School all children, from Foundation Stage to Year 6, receive regular swimming lessons during their time at the school in our heated indoor pool.
