SWIMMING at WINDMILL

 

At Windmill, we recognise the importance of children learning to swim and to be able to perform safe self-rescue at an early age.

 

We have recently evaluated our provision of swimming, therefore this year we are providing swimming lessons in the autumn and spring terms for Year 4 and a summer refresher course for Year 6.

 

Next year, we will continue with two terms of intensive swimming for Year 4 and a refresher for Year 6. We will also introduce a summer term of swimming for Year 2 to start to build their confidence in the water and to be able to pull themselves out of the water safely. We aim to continue to provide intensive swimming coaching for Year 4, so that children will have greater success at learning to swim compared to having short sessions over a couple of years. We will evaluate the impact of the new strategy for swimming provision annually.
