Kinderley Community Primary School

The sky's not the limit - it's only the beginning.

Swimming

By the time children leave Kinderley at the end of Year 6 we aim for them to have achieved the following skills set in swimming:

  • Pencil jump with arms above the head showing good control
  • Tread water for two minutes showing 360oturns in vertical position, one in each direction.
  • Head first surface dive and 5m swim underwater
  • 10m breaststroke showing good technique
  • 10m front crawl showing regular breathing
  • 25m swim on front or back
  • Push and glide on the front into a front somersault
  • Scull head first for 5m
  • 10m butterfly legs holding a float

 

At Kinderley School we provide each year group with ten, one hour swimming sessions. Those children who have been with us since Year 1 therefore, will have been offered up to 60 hours of swimming by the time they leave Year 6.

Those who joined at a later date may have had fewer lessons.

In 2018-19, 50% (four children) of the year group joined during KS2, with 13% (one child) joining during Y6.

This table shows the percentage of children achieving the skills set in 2018/19:

In the 2019-20 cohort, there are eight children, five have been here since Reception, with three others joining later on. Of those eight, three children achieved the skills required.
