Report on the Impact of PE and Sports Premium 2018-2019

Swimming at St John's 2018-2019 - Year 5 children:


The national curriculum requirement is for children to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, using a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations.

Our children currently have swimming sessions in Year 5.


Following swimming lessons during the Spring term 2019:

32/60 could confidently swim at least 25m (more than one pool length in one go)

47/60 children could swim 10 meters unaided (one pool width)

13/60 children could not swim.


At the start of the lessons only 40/ 60 children had the confidence to put their faces in the water or to try lifting their feet from the bottom with the use of a float. By the end of the lessons, 44/60 were confident to put their whole head under and 50/60 were confident to try floating with the use of a float.

The teaching focused on both the front and back crawl, with the stronger group working on stamina and specific Olympic-style skills, such as the relay. Those that could swim also practised treading water and floating unaided.
