For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their Year 6 cohort are meeting the National Curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Swimming lessons at Southfield take place for pupils in Years 4 and 5, with Year 5 attending swimming lessons during the Autumn term, and Year 4 swimming during the Spring and Summer terms. Swimming lessons take place at Lewsey Pool and are led by Active Luton staff.
Competence in swimming of our current Year 6 pupils is as follows:
|National Curriculum Requirement||Percentage of Year 6 pupils|
|Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres||38%|
|Use a range of strokes effectively||31%|
|Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations||15%|
