National Curriculum Swimming including Water Safety

On 24 July 2017, the ‘Curriculum Swimming and Water Safety Review Group’ published recommendations for getting every primary school child to reach the “minimum standard of water safety knowledge and swimming ability as stated inthe national curriculum”. 

The national curriculum has three measures for ensuring pupils can swim, which includes every child being able to swim “at least 25 metres unaided” by the end of key stage 2.

A survey of schools found that 26% were “not currently providing any curriculum swimming and water safety provision or not recording any attainment levels”.

Does your school meet the national curriculum requirement for swimming?

Although there are many challenges to accessing facilities, particularly in areas with a lack of pools, all efforts need to be made to fulfil the statutory minimum requirement.
