National Curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety:

At Chaddlewood we provide all year 4 students with an intensive daily 3 week swimming block.  

Pupils are taught to:
  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively[for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
2018/2019 In our current cohort of year 6 pupils 50 children have met the above objectives.   The other 10 children will have the chance to achieve these objectives again in the summer term.
