School Swimming

Following a detailed review of our practice and advice from the Cheltenham and Tewksbury Sports Partnership we decided to switch from weekly swimming for one term to an intensive week long swimming session for all our KS2 children. We now take each KS2 class swimming daily for one week each year. We found that this consistent approach, using small ratios (around 1:6) and teaching staff to assist qualified instructors in the pool greatly increases confidence and allows all children much longer actually swimming, which in turn, enables them to progress much quicker.
