Raising attainment in primary school swimming

At Winterslow, we use the sports premium to help fund the professional development and training available to train our staff to support high quality swimming and water safety lessons for the pupils. The premium is also used to provide additional top-up swimming lessons to pupils who have not been able to meet the national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety after the delivery of core swimming and water safety lessons. At the end of key stage 2 all pupils at Winterslow are expected to be able to swim confidently and know how to be safe in and around water.

We at Winterslow are required to publish information on the percentage of their pupils in year 6 who met each of the 3 swimming and water safety national curriculum requirements.


In 2018/19, 93.75% of children in year 6 met the national curriculum requirement to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

We were able to provide two children extra support and from this, they made good progress towards this requirement.
