In partnership with Tonbridge Swimming Pool, we provide swimming lessons for children in Year 3, 4 and 5. Children will have lessons for 10-12 weeks each year, giving at least 15 hours of swimming tuition during their time at Sussex Road Primary School.
The National Curriculum expectations are as follows:
All schools must provide swimming instruction either in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2. In particular, pupils should be taught to:
- swim competently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres;
- use a range of strokes effectively (e.g. front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke);
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
As this is a National Curriculum requirement, all children must participate in swimming lessons. They will require the following kit:
- Swimming Costume/Shorts
- Goggles (optional)
- Hat (optional)
