National Curriculum Swimming Provision

We teach school children across Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire during their school provision swimming lessons. We can tailor your lessons yo your school needs at a venue of your choice.

Drowning is the third most common cause of accidental death in children. All children should have the opportunity to learn how to swim and be taught how to stay safe in and around water.

Many children learn to swim outside of school. But for some, primary school will be the only opportunity they have to learn these vital lifesaving skills.

That is why it is so important to ensure all our primary schools are supported to provide the best possible swimming and water safety provision for all their pupils.

The government has recognised the importance of teaching our young people swimming and water safety by including it in the national curriculum. The three key outcomes within the physical education curriculum all children are expected to achieve by the end of year six are:


The guidance has been refreshed following the Department for Education announcing the allocations for the Sport and PE Premium funding for schools at the end of October.

Despite swimming being on the national curriculum for 25 years, around one in four pupils are currently leaving primary school unable to swim – and this figure rises sharply for pupils from lower socio economic groups.

If you would like us to make contact with your child's school to work with their swimming curriculum, please contact us directly and we can make arrangements for your school swimming provision.
