School swimming programme

Every junior and primary School in the East Riding of Yorkshire receives funding to send their Year 3/4 pupils for swimming lessons in order for them to achieve Key Stage 2 National Curriculum minimum standards.

All pupils who attend the school swimming programme lessons receive a certificate of the highest grade that they achieved during the course of lessons.

The minimum requirement for pupils to achieve the national curriculum key stage two requirements is:

  • to demonstrate the ability to swim a minimum distance of 25m on the front or back using a recognised swimming stroke;

  • and to demonstrate knowledge of water safety and personal survival.

Pupils who attend the school swimming lessons will be taught according to the East Riding National Curriculum Swimming Award Scheme syllabus, this is comparative to the awards scheme taught at the East Riding leisure centres.
